About this Episode

Snobs On Film takes a look at the rise of Jordan Peele, Barry Jenkins, and films like ‘Sorry to Bother You’, and wonders: are people of color being better represented by today’s unconventional storytelling than by the hyper-realism of classics like ‘Menace II Society’ and ‘Boyz N the Hood’? Afterwards, the crew gets inspired by Peele’s newest film during a roundtable that gives each Snob a multiple choice: name the one movie character who could actually be your doppelgänger.
