Miranda July Tries The Strangest Tenderness
Miranda July is a genre of her own—quite literally—this week on Be Reel. We’re talking about the just-released “Kajillionaire” (2020), “Me and You and Everyone We Know” (2005) and “The Future” (2011). In each, the writer-director introduces us to relationships familiar but strange, where chat rooms, taboos and family traditions both create and bridge the gaps between the world’s loneliest people.
our favorite movies
Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
