The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Maestro”

For this week’s third podcast review, I am joined by Josh ParhamDan BayerAlyssa Christian & Danilo Castro. Today, we are reviewing the second directorial effort from Academy Award-nominee Bradley Cooper with “Maestro,” starring Cooper, Carey Mulligan, Sarah Silverman, Matt Bomer, Josh Hamilton & Maya Hawke. A Netflix biopic less about the music of world-renowned conductor Leonardo Bernstein and more about his marriage with Felicia Montealegre, the film marks an artistic leap for Cooper both in front and behind the camera as he deploys many classical filmmaking tricks to take us through decades of an artists life. What did we think of the story, writing, performances, cinematography, sound, and makeup used to age the characters? Tune in as we discuss these elements, its awards season chances, and more in our SPOILER-FILLED review. Thank you, and enjoy!
