It's controversial, it has the nation talking, but is it good? 

On Friday's Up To Date, the indie, foreign and documentary film critics discuss the controversy surrounding The Interview and weigh in on its quality. Plus, they review  Paul Thomas Anderson's new film Inherent Vice, and check out the story of the terrifying monster of a boy's dream come to life.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.

Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region.
