LOCAL>> Sh*t, Actually with Lindy West

NYT cultural commentator brings her trademark wit to the topic of beloved movies

It’s natural to feel protective of our favorite movies—they can inform the way we see the world, introduce us to complex themes, or remind us of a simpler time (like before we knew what racism and sexism were).

Writer Lindy West argues, however, that liking a movie doesn’t always mean that it’s actually good.

In her new book Shit, Actually: The Definitive, 100% Objective Guide to Modern Cinema, West uses her trademark wit to test the durability of 23 iconic movies and ask herself the important question: “How’d they hold up?”

Join West as she returns to INFORUM to discuss the joys and challenges of re-watching your favorite pieces of cinema and to teach us how to be critical of the trash we love.
