Part of what makes writer-director Rick Famuyiwa's Dope
so fresh and joyous is that in many key ways is that it's not new at all. Like Dazed & Confused
or The Breakfast Club
, this is a film about just how weird the extraordinarily normal kids are — kids like you.
The teen comedy leads this week's Voice Film Club podcast
, as hosts Alan Scherstuhl and Stephanie Zacharek of the Village Voice
, and Amy Nicholson of the LA Weekly
, all recommend you see it.
Amy then gives us her review of the latest Pixar movie, Inside Out
, and this week's episode ends with Stephanie's recommendation of Eden
and Alan's recommendation of Goodfellas
, which marks its 25th anniversary with a digital restoration.
