Our Picks + The Closer and Passing

Tuesday 23 November 2021, by Abla Kandalaft, Coco Green

We jumped straight into this week’s picks:

Dave Chappelle’s Netflix show The Closer - we discuss the various contentious issues that had been raised, the concept of punching down - or up - , taking offence, who holds power and critiques of whiteness. 

Passing - Does Rebecca Hall’s adaptation live up to the book? We discuss casting choices, the American specificity of the phenomenon of passing and the director’s perspective on it.
