The Long Take

Jul 26 2023 • 40 mins

Greta Gerwig’s Barbie divided us like no movie ever has on this podcast.

Is it a sharp satire of patriarchy, or is it simply making the most obvious points about how unfair the world is for half the population?

Is it an imaginative skewering of consumerism, or is a particularly annoying attempt at covert marketing?

Is it another win for Gerwig, or a shockingly tone-deaf misstep? We discuss all this and more in our latest episode.
