For this week’s main podcast review, I am joined by Ema Sasic, Josh Parham, Dan Bayer & Daniel Howat. Today, we are reviewing the latest film from Ava DuVernay, “Origin,” starring Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor, Jon Bernthal, Vera Farmiga, Audra McDonald, Niecy Nash-Betts, Nick Offerman & Blair Underwood. Making its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival, where it competed for the Golden Lion, the dramatic adaptation of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson’s life and novel “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents” was one of 2023’s most unique and powerful films. What did we think of it? Should it have been made into a documentary instead of a feature film? How do we feel about its awards season campaign? Tune in as we discuss these points, the writing, direction, acting, its Oscar potential, and more in our SPOILER-FILLED review. Thank you, and enjoy!
