Screenwriter-turned-director Aaron Sorkin has always had a different speed than his peers when it comes to dialogue. He can thank his sharp editors as well, but his brand of talk is some of the best in the business. We’ve seen it applied to military dramas, poker tables, social media inventors, protestors, and tech moguls, and now we see it applied to the guises of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. The Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, is here to weigh in on Being the Ricardos, now streaming on Amazon Prime.
For their 46th episode, 25YL film critics and rapid-fire dads Will Johnson and Don Shanahan meet up this week to discuss Aaron Sorkin’s newest directorial effort. The fellas debate what worked and what didn’t with Sorkin’s brand of dialogue and the movie’s top-notch cast. They also handicap Being the Ricardos‘ Oscar chances as we inch closer to the 94th Academy Awards. Hissy Fitters, we’re home! This show is what’s for dinner.
