Killers of the Flower Moon
/

Four years after The Irishman, Martin Scorsese is back in the director’s chair. But this time, he leaves behind the familiar world of the Mob to explore a different kind of crime and a centuries-old injustice.

Killers of the Flower Moon is the true story of the Osage Nation; a Native American tribe who became rich from the oil flowing underneath their land, only to have their wealth plundered by the white residents living among them. Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Lily Gladstone helm the cast under Scorsese’s seasoned eye in what is sure to be a major contender at this year’s Oscars.

Join Jon and Tim as they discuss Dan Baker’s love for Charlie Brown, the Rolling Stones documentary about a murder, the return of talking animals, Tim’s love for the Criterion Collection, why limits enhance creativity, falling asleep in movie theaters, Jon’s love for Lord of the Rings, “real” theater food, Leonardo DiCaprio’s take on a simpleton, Hollywood typecasting, an underrated Robert DeNiro performance from 1990, Lily Gladstone’s breakout role, Martin Scorsese’s command of pacing, the seeds of dehumanization, Do The Right Thing vs. Killers of the Flower Moon, a defense of 80-year-old directors, America’s original sins, and the normal everyday evil that form the seeds of injustice.
