In the resulting discussion, Rivka and Frank explain how the cooperative media production structure could supplant the Hollywood studio system, and share some of their favorite personal films — including the ones they still love, despite their terrible politics.

In addition, Rivka and Frank discuss the recent wave of Hollywood blacklistings against entertainment professionals who have been critical of the Israeli government’s siege of Gaza, including actors Melissa Barrera and Susan Sarandon.

For next week’s movie, MVC will be watching Ben Stiller’s 2001 comedy Zoolander.
