Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie talk about one of their very favorite films of the year, Kogonada's Columbus!* The film stars John Cho as Jin, the son of a famous architect stranded in a small Indiana town, following his father's stroke. He meets a young girl named Casey, who hasn't worked out what she wants to do with her life. During this lovely, contemplative "walking around" movie, Kogonada takes his characters and audience on an eye-opening journey of self-examination and art analysis.
(Before joining the ranks of narrative filmmaker, Kogonada became known for creating striking video essays, a couple of which Ian recommends on the show.)
Ian and David dive into this architectural marvel of a movie, but not before sharing a few more thoughts about the backlash against Rian Johnson's falsely maligned Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And, hey, if you can't get enough of that, Ian invites you to watch (and subscribe to) Chicago Film News' two
