This week on The Binge Movie Podcast, we start off with a lengthy analysis of the biggest film-world controversy in recent memory—The Birth of a Nation star/writer/director Nate Parker‘s recently-uncovered college past as an accused rapist—then review three new releases about outsider perspectives on ideological clashes. None of them earned our Pick of the Week title, so we’ve retroactively named last week’s POTW runner-up, Little Men, this week’s winner.
