Here’s a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Tie-ins, a monthly series where we take a classic movie and connect it to a film discussed on our main show. In this episode of our monthly Tie-in series, we are heading to the Deep South to explore the racial tensions of the late 1960s in the Best Picture-winning In the Heat of the Night in connection to our February series on sequels to Oscar-winning movies. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the iconic stature of Sidney Poitier, the film as an example of cinema in transition, the slap heard around the world, Chief Gillespie’s insecurities and much more!
Tune in and enjoy!
Hosts: Jakub Flasz, Randy Burrows & Nicolò Grasso
