103: ‘The Slap’: Controversy or Nontroversy?

March 29, 2022

Episode Notes

On this week’s episode, Sonny Bunch (The Bulwark), Alyssa Rosenberg (The Washington Post), and Peter Suderman (Reason) discussed the most controversial moment at the Oscars, and no, I’m not referring to Zack Snyder’s sweep of the fan favorite categories. We break down Will Smith’s attack on Chris Rock, using Smith’s recent memoir and his efforts to be less people-pleasing and more true to himself as a jumping-off point. Then they reviewed The Lost City, Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum’s delightful action romcom. Make sure to come back to Bulwark+ on Friday for the bonus episode about Sean Combs’s … odd interpretation of The Godfather, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
