Good episode? Give it some love!
Let’s see if you know this quote, “Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads!” Or “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.” The iconic lines from “Back to the Future” and “Apocalypse Now” are linked in film critic J. Hoberman’s newest cultural anthology, a book that takes its title from another famous line, “Make My Day: Movie Culture in the Age of Reagan.”…Hoberman joins guest host Courtney Collins to talk about movies and politics in the late 1970s and ’80s – and how those films dive into the themes American audiences yearned for.
