"Lass is More" Flashes Back to "Manchester by the Sea" and "Nocturnal Animals"

I may be on vacation this week, but it’s awards season and the podcast must go on.

Today we’re talking about the way in which two different Academy Award nominees utilize flashbacks.  First, there’s “Nocturnal Animals,” which jumps backwards in time to prop up a movie that is otherwise exceptionally frustrating.  Then, there’s “Manchester by the Sea” which is a wonderful bit of filmmaking and which would work even if there were no flashbacks in it.  Both movies are heartbreaking, one in the disappointment it instills and the other due to the story it tells.

Listen and enjoy!
