Ep 116: “Love Jones”

September 01, 2020

We get together, fall apart, and start all over again with Theodore Witcher’s “Love Jones” and discuss:

  • acting, adding subtext through performances;
  • Story & writing, how a romance creates tension, and why sex scenes are great storytelling tools;
  • And other such stuff and things and stuff.

There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart’s desire. The other is to gain it. – George Bernard Shaw

Notes & References:
Roger Ebert’s review circa 1997 – I found this a really fun read considering it’s hard to generate context 20+ years removed from its release
