In this episode, I talk about Joachim Trier’s 2011 film “Oslo August 31st.” It follows Anders, a young man just out of rehab for heroin addiction, as he walks around the city of Oslo, meeting old friends and trying to decide if life is worth living. I think this is a powerful and unforgettable film that reminds us of the beauty of being alive. It’s one of my favorite films from the 2010s, and I urge you to watch it if you haven’t seen it yet. There are major spoilers in this episode. I also talk about suicide and mental illness.
