Kino keystone Abdul Malik returns for some F1 shit talk, the writing and projects he's been working on, and the brand-new Netflix documentary jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy.

Please note that the second half of this episode contains conversations on self harm and suicide, which can't be avoided because it's central to the plot of Dear Evan Hansen. 2021 provided its share of highs and lows at the cinema, and these two films capture them well. Dear Evan Hansen is the rancid musical that's somehow not a coming out story, and House of Gucci is an auto-pilot Ridley Scott Movie.
