10 years ago when I started writing Sound Of Metal, I thought to myself, how can I time this release for the worst theatrical moment in cinematic history? It took careful planning but I do believe I’ve pulled it off.
#SoundOfMetal opens in theaters today.

You always find a way of nailing the things no one else would even attempt. 👏🏽

I loved SOUND OF METAL and @rizwanahmed's performance is a stunner in a career full of them. (His co-star #PaulRaci gets a lot of love in this ep, too!) We also talk about the value of representation and "The Riz Test"!

Thanks for the chat - glad we got to touch on Chadwick Boseman and Irrfan Khan’s timeless work.

Mathieu Kassovitz’s ‘La Haine’- It’s a film that I stumbled across when I was a teenager. It opened me up to a different kind of cinema. I feel like it’s a timeless movie, sadly.

Mum’s Do Pyaaza Recipe- ‘Do Pyaaza’ means from two onions. It’s a very simple curry dish that during lockdown my mum taught me. It just tastes like home to me.

Aziz Mian’s ‘Main Sharabi’- Aziz Mian was a qwwali singer. Aziz Mian was iconoclastic. He was deeply controversial.

‘90s Multiculturalism- In the ‘90s there was this moment of celebrating multiculturalism in the UK. @TVSanjeev and @meerasyal created ‘Goodness Gracious Me’, this groundbreaking sitcom like ‘Key & Peele’ or ‘Chappelle’s Show’.

British Rave Music- We have this proud tradition of sound-system culture that comes from the Jamaican influence in London, which is huge. U.K. Apache’s ‘Original Nuttah’ is a great primer into what jungle music is.

Made a list of influences that inspire me for @NYTimes.

What are yours?
