Sordid Cinema Podcast #509: The Sounds and Sights of Moonlight

Moonlight Podcast Review

Told in three chapters over the course of about 16 years, Moonlight (adapted from playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney’s short theater piece, In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue) explores the plight of a young black man across three eras, searching for his place in the world while struggling with his gay identity. This week we invite Goomba Stomp’s Games Editor Mike Worby to help us discuss the Academy Award-winning feature its universal subject: navigating the treacherous waters of adolescence to emerge into adulthood.

Launched in 2007, Sordid Cinema is one of the longest-running film podcasts. Following a long absence (let’s call it an extended break), Ricky D is back on the Sordid Cinema beat, accompanied by his new co-host, Patrick Murphy. The Sordid Cinema Podcast makes its return, with a new format that sees hosts Ricky D and Patrick Murphy discussing some of our favorite genre films over the years that may have flown under the radar for some audiences. This new version of the long-running show will focus more on discussion and less, on reviews, as we hope to examine the selections from a multitude of angles and break down what makes these films so special. Brought to you by the former editors of Sound on Sight, Sordid Cinema is Goomba Stomp’s Film and TV section and a leading source of movie reviews, and discussion from the world of international, independent, cult and genre cinema. We cover film festivals around the world including Cannes, TIFF, Fantasia, NYFF, Tribeca, Fantastic Fest, SXSW, FNC, Venice, Berlin, and more.
