Wesley Morris On The Value Of Trashy Movies
Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic, Wesley Morris, recently wrote “In Defense Of Trash,” in which he argued:
There’s a primacy to good trash that cuts away at rational thought and propriety. It plays to the need for voyeurism not only sexually but emotionally: Sometimes you want to see feeling and eroticism and awfulness turned all the way up until the volume deafens you.
He joins us to explain why “some very iffy movies this year had magic moments.”
