96: Substantive Cinema | The Straight Story feat. Tyler Huckabee

We love sharing great movies with you all and it's especially enjoyable to highlight a film that is generally overlooked or that a majority of people may not be familiar with. This week we are looking at David Lynch's 1999 film The Straight Story. The movie is best experienced without knowing much about it (so if you haven't seen it before, stop reading and watch it now!) but it's a beautifully human, true story about a 73 year old man and the lengths he went to to try to reconcile with his older brother before anything else happened to them. More than one of us on this episode consider it a perfect film. Our guest for this conversation is Relevant Senior Editor Tyler Huckabee. Tyler is a movie lover and has been a David Lynch fan for a long time. We talk about how The Straight Story is both an anomaly in Lynch's filmography as well as how it make complete sense. And be sure to listen all the way through for a great celebrity crush story that Tyler was generous enough to share. **We are taking next week off for Easter Sunday to rest and enjoy the time with loved ones and hope you all have a wonderful, restful time. Feel free to share a favorite older episode with a friend and we will be back in your feeds the following week on 4/24!** Buy/Rent The Straight Story on iTunes Shoutouts: Station Eleven (HBO Max) X-Men Hickman Amazon & Hoopla Follow Tyler: Twitter The Relevant Podcast Cape Town podcast Follow Us: This week we are sponsored by Chris Hotchkiss, American Family.
