Movies Steve Bannon Would Hate: Moonlight

This year's Academy Award winner for Best Picture, Moonlight, is the latest installment in the Movies Steve Bannon Would Hate miniseries. 

Courtney and Chris gush over the cinematic achievement of Barry Jenkins, in all its glorious execution. A story-driven indie film, beautifully photographed and powerfully acted, that avoids becoming a polemic or a Race Movie.

Instead, Moonlight moves audiences by telling a moving story. One that is too rare in American cinema, featuring characters often avoided in mainstream art and conversation.

Which is one of many reasons why Steve Bannon would hate Moonlight so much. 

What else would Bannon hate? As Courtney says: "He would hate two well-meaning white liberals sitting around and talking about this movie more than anything." 

This week, Courtney and Chris are asking listeners to donate to the National organization of Black Lives Matter, or to find your local BLM and donate. But don't just donate. Get involved.
