The Harder They Fall: Great Western Film, Or Too Much Style Over Substance?

The Harder They Fall: Great Western Film, Or Too Much Style Over Substance?

On this week's episode of Kickin & Streamin Podcast, Graham & Jocelyn are joined by Geaux Dee & Smash of the Talka Brothas Podcast to review the much anticipated 'The Harder They Fall.'  A film by Jeymes Samuel, British writer, director, singer-songwriter, and music produce. The Harder They Fall became one of the most anticipated and talked about upcoming films in 2021 because it would be a Western film featuring all black cast; which included Regina King, Idris Elba, Zazie Beetz,  Jonathan Majors, Lakeith Stanfield, among others. The film, although a fictional story, portrayed real-life historical Black Americans who existed in the old American West. Graham, Jocelyn, Geaux Dee, and Smash review the film's overall production from the story arcs, the portrayals, the score, and its visual components as a whole. They also ponder whether The Harder The Fall is a great Western film by itself, or it was perhaps aided by the constellation of stars who appeared in it.  The crew also addressed the accusations of colorism levied at the director and the producers of the movie for casting German-American actress Zazie Beetz as the very well known African-American female icon 'Stagecoach Mary.'  Clips of this episode will also be available to watch on our YouTube channel and please don't forget to subscribe for future episodes.
