This week hosts Afra and Izzy nerd out about Edward Norton’s 2019 film “Motherless Brooklyn” with our special first-time guest, DK-an architect based in New York.

The neo-noir film touches on a lot of topics we love to talk about: the fight for racial equality in the U.S., the urban plan3ning history of NYC, housing rights in the past and at present. The movie may not be the most famous one coming out of the last award season, but it’s a lovingly crafted story with a lot of ambition and heart. Please find it and watch it if possible.

In this episode, you will hear about:

  • Why noir films have a gender problem, and how Motherless Brooklyn approaches that
  • Jane Jacobs vs. Robert Moses, death and life of great American cities
  • What happened to Penn Station?
  • Housing rights then and now (this sounds like a one-semester course, oops)
  • What’s lost in China’s frenzy of housing development/urbanization?
  • Is Edward Norton living by his principles? A rhetorical question.
  • The impossible choice between Ed Norton and Brad Pitt, both at the height of their beauty. (Afra and Izzy disagree.)
