Love Beats Rhymes Feat Tarandeep

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-i5as8-f8a2c5

Reel Poetry with Tarandeep review 2017 film Love Beats Rhymes (starring Jill Scott, Azealia Banks, Common, and John David Washington).  The main question, Is rap poetry?, is a good talking point but the movie doesn’t dive into it as much and deals a lot of clichés with the cast.

The Kindergarten Teacher

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-iq4w8-f1ea43

Iambic Poetry Podcast present Reel Poetry

Reel Poetry reviews the 2018 independent film: The Kindergarten Teacher.

This movie definitely creeped out the reviewers. The poems done by Ocean Vuong(I spelled it wrong during the review) were spectacular but did they help or hurt the film. Maggie Gyllenhaal gave a performance that still haunt the reviewers.
