Marvel’s rescheduling of Black Panther and Captain Marvel has one Matt calling shenanigans and the other Matt preaching patience on the subject of diversity in mass media. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised which. Mamo assemble!
A spoiler-filled discussion of the narrative tricks of Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario and a brief consideration of the rightness and wrongness of bio-picking Steve Jobs make up this latest episode of Mamo…

Surprise! All evidence to the contrary, the Matts are indeed back at it at the Toronto International Film Festival, and sit down on Day 3 to square things up on the films thus far. We talk The Martian, Green Room, Body, Hitchcock/Truffaut, and more!
