Movies 101: "The Death of Stalin," "Loveless" and "Faces Places"

Dan Webster, Mary Pat Treuthart and Nathan Weinbender discuss two Russian-themed films, the political satire, The Death of Stalin, and the bleak drama, Loveless. They conclude with a consideration of the French Oscar-nominated documentary, Faces Places. Intermission music is from Maurice Jarre's score to Dr. Zhivago.

After more than 25 years of teaching music, theater and English in San Francisco schools, Jim relocated to Spokane in 1995 to become organist/music director for St. Augustine Parish on the South Hill. Since around 2004, with the help and patience of Verne Windham, he has been able to realize his long-standing dream of doing radio. Jim specializes in classical music, but also can do the occasional jazz show. Jim and his wife, Carol, fill their free time caring for llamas, rabbits and chickens after having watched their two children grow up and leave the nest.
