Reeled In: “Beasts Of No Nation”
Look — sometimes we want to bring you topical reviews, but want to save ourselves from watching three movies on a given topic, like say, the indoctrination of child soldiers. So, we bring you the first “Reeled In” mini-episode of the podcast. They’ll be more of these bite-sized episodes to come, and for the first edition, we suffered with, or through, depending on which of us you ask, “Beasts of No Nation.” That’s the Netflix-released child solider movie, starring Idris Elba and directed by Cary Fukunaga.

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.
