86. Match Point (w/ Mary Beth Willard)

How should we engage with the work of immoral artists? We explore this question through the lens of Woody Allen's late period masterpiece Match Point. Mary Beth Willard (Philosopher, Weber State, and author of "Why it's OK to Enjoy the Work of Immoral Artists") joins us to discuss the aesthetic costs of not engaging with art, the expressive nature of uncritically loving the work of immoral artists, and we delve into the film's many themes: guilt, luck, meaning, and morality. These are complicated issues, and we are glad you are joining us to explore them! Follow Mary Beth on Twitter! Buy "Why it's OK to Love the Work of Immoral Artists"! Follow us on Twitter!
