Fight the system! Than make movies about it!

This week on CinemaJaw we concentrate on movies about Fighting the system. First with our Guest Dan Stewart.

Dan, a filmmaker whose first feature Local Band, is currently making the festival circuit and picking up some buzz! The film portrays a band’s trials, tribulations, successes, and failures trying to make something happen in the Chicago DIY Punk Scene. the cast is a veritable who’s who of the aforementioned scene featuring several musical performances by actual Chicago rock acts. Fighting the system of what we are supposed to do as we enter our 30s is a key theme to the film so fits in perfectly, and Dan’s career will certainly be one to keep an eye on!

In addition, we bring you our review of another “fighting the System” movie, Dumb Money which tells the tale of the GameStop short squeeze class warfare between the Wall Street haves and have-nots. It stars Paul Dano, Seth Rogan and a great supporting cast. Have a listen to get our opinion.
