SVU #151: Mudbound / Black Female Filmmakers
Eric Kohn of IndieWire and the Screen Talk podcast joins Alison while on the road in the Florida Keys to discuss Dee Rees’ Netflix original MUDBOUND. Matt is still off on paternity leave, so this episode of Filmspotting: Streaming Video Unit has turned the responsibility for picking the main review to our guest host. In addition to talking Rees’ ensemble period drama, an Oscar contender with an outside chance of making history, Eric and Alison recommend other films directed by black women, some of whom Rees has cited as influences, and all work available to rent or stream.
