This is a strange little podcast.​​ On the surface, we are just another movie podcast that fact checks biopics. Scratch that surface and you will find that truth can be stranger than fiction. We are here with a mission to present the truth, gain a new appreciation of the topic at hand, and right some wrongs. The film will dictate where the discussion goes. Will it be politics, sports, pop culture, music or history? The possibilities are endless. ​At the end of the episode, you will have a gr ...

Amadeus Wolfgang Mozart was a prolific genius who has inspired people for centuries. I think we can count the movie "Amadus" in that tally, because Mozart's story (and the rumors of Salieri killing Mozart), inspired screenwriter Peter Schaffer to craft a brilliant play which inspired Milos Foreman to create a timeless movie that looks and sounds fa…

Billy Beane brought sabermetrics to baseball. Well, at least according to the movie "Moneyball". Questions: If baseball is a game that has always been steeped in statistics? Why are statistics now controversial? ​ Has sabermetrics changed the game of baseball? Who did Aaron Sorkin throw under the bus this time? Where does Steven Soderbergh fall int…

Aaron Sorkin is back with all his Sorkin-y traits: complete with impassioned monolouges and strange asides. It's not the first movie based on a true story he has done (we talked about "Molly's Game" a couple of episodes ago), but the question is, did he do justice to the true story of the Chicago 7? Let's just say some heroes will rise and some her…

Molly Bloom ​fell out of pursuing skiing as a profession and fell into running high stakes card games in Los Angeles.

Alan Turing should be hailed as an international hero. Instead, he was castrated by his government for being gay. He played a key role in decoding messages from the Nazi's during World War II, and by some estimates, shortened that war by two years and saved millions of lives with his genius.​ ​The question before us for this episode is "Does 'The I…
 
What would you do for the person you love? Would you give them something you don't want them to have? Would you rob a bank for them? Would you kill for them?​ ​"Dog Day Afternoon" is about the bank robbery, but it is wrapped up in the Gay Liberation movement that was kicked off just a few years earlier with the Stonewall Riots. It folded in an incr…
 
One of my favorite films that few people have heard of is this achingly beautiful story about a man who studies wolves in the arctic. The themes are complex, the actors are brilliant, and the film is unique in its depiction of man and nature. ​ ​While this movie is based on the book that is based on a true story by Farley Mowat, how true is that tr…
 
The Beats. Iconoclastic representations of freedom. Romanticized. Criticized. Eulogized. But, what did it mean to be a Beat? ​"Howl" does not tell you because it is a biography of a poem. A poem that exercised the freedom of spoken word and thought. A poem that reinforced that same freedom as the subject of an obscenity trial. A poem that has spoke…

What do you know about "Norma Rae"? I mean, aside from the five second clip which is shown at the Oscars every year of Sally Field standing on top​ of a table holding a sign that says "UNION". ​ Did you know she was a real person?

What happens when a ​true story about corporate greed and mental illness become a comedic film? The answer is a lot of great things. But, what happens when you talk about what really happened?

This is one of those movies which you are always told is great, but you never get around to seeing it. To tell you the truth, if it had not been for Lolita, I don't think I ever would have seen this film. And, I would have missed out on what is probably the biopic that sets the bar for all other biopics. Is it true to reality? Hint: We have never g…

What a surprise to see a piece of history that has never been brought to the forefront. "Hidden Figures" is an enjoyable, feel-good film, but does it provide the tribute the filmmakers intended?

What happens when a writer becomes a public figure? How much of yourself should you have to give to the rest of the world, just because you wrote a book? Can you trust that a reporter will present the person you are? ​ These are the questions that David Foster Wallace wrestled with when his book, "Infinite Jest" became a bestseller. Rob, John and D…
 
P.L. Travers was a fascinating and flawed woman who stood on her own. Walt Disney was a man who knew what he wanted, and he knew how to get it. Is "Saving Mr. Banks" the story of a woman who has a cathartic experience and comes to terms with issues with her father, or is it about a woman who is trying to protect her intellectual property? Mariam wi…
