About This Show
Welcome to Trash & Treasures! We rescue the movies others throw away.
Join us every two weeks as three weirdos look through the forgotten footnotes of cinema with a queer lens in hand, looking for great movies nobody talks about and the kind of amazing garbage that makes movie nights worth hosting.

Newsies - Needs More Child Death
2 days ago
This movie raises many questions: why was baby Christian Bale, a Good Actor and Bad Dancer, cast in a singing and dancing show? Why did Disney think a strike spearheaded by homeless children was perfect for a squeaky clean musical? How exactly does collective action work, anyway?
We spend some time with the real-life history that inspired Newsies--which is a heck of a lot more inspiring than the movie itself turned out to be. There are a lot of interesting things adjacent to this movie but not actually in it, actually. But baby Christian Bale sure does want to be a cowboy.
