The Goggler Podcast #503: American Fiction

Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review Cord Jefferson’s “Best Picture” nominated satire, American Fiction.

American Fiction is now available to purchase on VOD.

Monk is a frustrated novelist who’s fed up with the establishment that profits from Black entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, he uses a pen name to write an outlandish Black book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.

Based on the novel Erasure by Percival Everett, American Fiction was written and directed by Cord Jefferson, and stars Jeffrey Wright, Tracee Ellis Ross, John Ortiz, Erika Alexander, Leslie Uggams, Adam Brody, Issa Rae, and Sterling K. Brown.
