Berkreviews.com Movie Club – City of God (2002)
Jonathan (@berkreviews) picked the film City of God (2002) for the last movie from the coming of age theme. Corey (@coreyrstarr) had not seen it either, which means they leave July both checking another movie off their gap list. The film was directed by Fernando Meirelles and Kátia Lund starring Alexandre Rodrigues, Leandro Firmino, and Matheus Nachtergaele. It’s been on Jonathan list for a few years after a student recommended it during the 366 challenge.
Next episode: Rushmore (1998)
For the month of August, Corey and Jonathan have selected films that deal with school in honor of that dreaded time of year when students are pulled back in. Corey has not seen Rushmore, which is directed by Wes Anderson and stars Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Olivia Williams. However, this is one of Jonathan’s favorite films so he’s very excited for her to finally see it.
Berk Reviews Movie Club – General Info
Corey and Jonathan both realized they had a ton of movies they’d never seen. In an effort to work through their gap list, they started this podcast to ensure they at least check one new film off the list almost every week. Thus, for a film to qualify for Movie Club one or both have to have never seen it or at least not seen it for a long time.
