Could 'American Fiction' upset the Oscar race? Plus Australia's Taylor Swift meltdown

View descriptionShare

While Oppenheimer looks set to dominate the Academy Awards, another film is quietly gaining momentum. Based on the best-selling novel Erasure by Percival Everett, American Fiction is a literary comedy that confronts our culture's obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes.

Osman, Thomas and Mel review the film (spoiler-free), discuss the rise of cultural gatekeepers and how American Fiction successfully challenges the ideas of representation in film, publishing and the arts. Plus, Taylor Swift is (still) in town, and everyone has lost their minds, but that’s a good thing, right? And of course, Impress Your Friends is back, but this time we’re also rating previous reccs. Fun!
