The Film Comment Podcast: Class at the Movies
Visions of class surround us each day, both overtly and subliminally, in advertisements, literature, and film. Which visual and narrative tools are specific to each medium? To what extent does authorial background matter? And how does criticism of aesthetics or content either elucidate or complicate matters? All of these topics are broached in this episode of the Film Comment podcast, wherein Digital Editor Violet Lucca joins K. Austin Collins, a regular contributor to The Ringer, as well as regular FC critics Nick Pinkerton and Eric Hynes (also the associate curator of the Museum of the Moving Image) to examine cinematic depictions of wealth and poverty.
