“[Moonstruck] represents a part of our culture that doesn’t always get the spotlight.” – Dom Nero
Today I interviewed Dom Nero.
Dom Nero is a staff video editor at Esquire Magazine, where he also writes about film, television, and video games. He’s the co-host of Eye of the Duck, a podcast about movies and the scenes that make them special.
In this episode we speak about: being Italian American beyond the Godfather, specifically:
the legacy of Italian American anti-fascism,
what Sebastian Maniscalco
means for the community,
where the racist bent in the community comes from
why Moonstruck should be the new touchstone movie for Italian Americans.
