Episoe 7: Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Director of Broken Horses

2015-03-31
Length: 11s

Vidhu Vinod Chopra is a well known quantity in Indian cinema, having written, directed, and/or produced a number of hit movies both commercially and critically.  Now, he's taken on a new challenge, directing a Hollywood film, and not just any sort of Hollywood film, a Western.  We chat about his reasoning for taking on the challenge and how the process in the States differs from that in India.

Minisode 4: Blockbusters vs. Smaller Fare

2015-03-24
Length: 4s

If I go and see "Star Wars" on the big screen this year, but don't make it a point to see a smaller drama, am I telling Hollywood that I value "Star Wars" more even if I don't?  I think I might be, I don't like the message that sends, and I'm just not sure what to do about it.

This time out, "Lass is More" sits down with Anna Mastro, who is making her debut as a feature film director with "Walter," a new movie starring Andrew J. West (the head cannibal at Terminus, if that helps).  Why did she pursue this film to take the plunge and what did she learn?

Minisode 3: The Breakfast Club

2015-03-10
Length: 4s

"The Breakfast Club" is turning 30 this year and that means a new anniverary Blu-ray edition.  

In this minisode, I spend a few minutes thinking about just how important that movie is to me, the number of times I've seen it, and the influence it, and other films, have played in shaping today's filmmakers.

Episode 5: Joe Lynch, director of Everly

2015-03-05
Length: 14s

On today's podcast, we have a talk with Joe Lynch, the director of "Everly."  In fact though, Lynch is more than simply the director, he also helped develop the story itself.  The movie, which stars Salma Hayek, is something of a brutal, bloody affair.  Taking place almost entirely in a single location, it is different from many a traditional movie.  Lynch explains to us where the idea came from and how it developed over time.

Episode 4: Steve Loter & Michael Wigert of Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast

2015-03-02
Length: 14s

This week's first "Lass is More" features a discussion with the director and producer of the new Tinker Bell movie, "Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast."  The wide-ranging discussion not only offers up a look at the collaborative process involved in the creation of the film, but also reveals a "Star Wars" connection.

Additionally, I give my thoughts on Foxcatcher as the five-time Academy Award nominee arrives on DVD.

What is it that makes people think it's okay to text during a movie?  It isn't.  It does in fact disturb other moviegoers, you are in fact wrong by doing it.  Just listen as Lass is More explains.

In our first minisode, we explain just how it is that an absolutely average evening at the movies is going to run you more than $100.  That is a whole lot of money, and the movie better be worth it.

Lass is More with Josh Lasser

Focusing on the media, "Lass is More" sits down with the individuals who make the movies and shows that people are, or will be, talking about. The things we watch are not created in a vacuum, but rather as responses to far larger thoughts and issues. From why someone took a role to what it means to them to where they’re going next, we put the pieces of the puzzle together. The "Lass is More" podcast gets to the core of the issue, offering perspective on both the people involved in a project, and the project itself.
