Critically Acclaimed #132 | Hamilton, Metamorphosis, The Truth, and Bugsy Malone!

There's a million things that CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED hasn't done, but just you wait! Just you wait! 

This week, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore the brilliance and understandable criticisms of the hit musical HAMILTON, venture into the gory world of the possession thriller METAMORPHOSIS, and ponder the works of Hirokazu Kore-eda with his new French film THE TRUTH!

And this week on THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED STREAMING CLUB, Bibbs and Witney unearth one of the weirdest musicals ever made! BUGSY MALONE launched the career of Alan Parker and Dexter Fletcher, with a story about Prohibition Era gangsters played entirely by kids! Sure, it's got great music by Paul Williams, but is that premise just too danged weird to work?

Give it a listen!

Hamilton - 1:18 
Metamorphosis - 38:56 
The Truth - 50:32 
Bugsy Malone - 1:01:01
