This week, we are joined by our SJW (Senior Jewish Correspondent) Toby Herman to discuss Liberty Heights, the fourth and final entry in Barry Levinson's 'Baltimore Films'.
Although Liberty Heights is the primary focus, we take on the entirety of Levinson's semi-autobiographical tetralogy (Diner, Tin Men, and Avalon) to discuss what works, what doesn't work, and how his directorial style evolved, and culminated with Heights. We also take the opportunity to share our very different experiences growing up Jewish, and how those experiences are reflected in these films. Not to mention, this movie has baby Adrien Brody and Ben Foster, and THAT is a giant plus!
