It feels like summer blockbuster season is a little late to the party this year, but Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw makes up for a lot of missed opportunities: Kinetic, bananas, and a hell of a lot of fun.

On this week’s edition of After Image, Metro Arts producer Veronica Straight-Lingo and I also discuss the excellent new documentary Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am, and closeout 2019’s Chautauqua Summer Silent Series with Frank Borzage’s 1927, 7th Heaven.

Listen to After Image, Fridays at 3:00 p.m., on KGNU’s Metro Arts: 88.5 FM and 1390 AM Denver/Boulder, 93.7 FM in Nederland98.7 FM in Fort Collins, and online at
