Indiewire Podcast: From 'The Sound of Music' to 'The Squid and the Whale,' What Defines a 'Classic' Movie?

In this week’s episode, Kohn and Thompson explore some of the possibilities from the upcoming Cannes Film Festival lineup before digging into some of the selections of this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival, which began this week with “The Sound of Music.” What turns a movie into a “classic,” anyway? From there, the hosts dig into Noah Baumbach’s newly released “While We’re Young” and explore the trajectory of the New York filmmaker’s career. They also discuss another new release, the Hungarian drama “White God.”
