David Denby & Ron Shelton
David Denby and Ron Shelton.

Sometimes, it's tough to motivate to go watch a three-hour docu-film about Abraham Lincoln. Especially when there's a Kardashian marathon on E! and you can Netflix the Lincoln movie in a few months and watch it on your iPad at home in your sweatpants. It's scenarios like these that have inspired New Yorker staff writer and film critic David Denby's new book, Do the Movies Have a Future? Hear Denby, author of the best-selling book Snark, discuss the book and the future of our national theater. Stay and hear Oscar-nominated screenwriter and director Ron Shelton discuss his iconic sports films, which include Bull Durham, Tin Cup and White Men Can't Jump. It's a double feature you shouldn't pass up.
