The course of the conversation:

Real Egypt vs. Hollywood/News Egypt

You’re living your life, but what’s the point?

The 90′s is where Modernity will always begin.

Kids, don’t set Jesus on fire.

The stock footage combining reality with film was very successful.

The prevalence of names.

Jonathan left his iPad at work, and so we had to kind of fake the list placement.

Nathaniel placed the movie higher than he expected.

Jonathan liked the movie as a snapshot of the time and place.

Michael feels it’s important as education on a part of the world most of us don’t know.
