This episode is all about Jordan Peele’s latest film Nope. I was knocked out by this spectacle and pronounced it Peele’s best work yet. But I have lots of questions about what exactly is going on in Nope.
So I invited two guests.
Rene Rodriguez, an award-winning writer teaches at the University of Miami and runs the Bill Cosford Cinema for the UM School of Communication. We chatted about the significance of Nope, how it was shot with Imax cameras and whether it’s too long.
Runi Goyal is a former board member of the nonprofit Tropic Cinema in Key West. She now lives in Hawaii but she saw Nope while in Boston, after I asked her to be on the podcast. That is dedication to film.
This podcast is presented in partnership with The Studios of Key West, a leading arts institute in South Florida, and produced by Kevin Assam.
