Russo Brothers Stay Connected to Movie Lovers With ‘Pizza Film School’

Joe and Anthony Russo are the summer blockbuster movie brothers – and they aren’t letting coronavirus ruin that reputation. For the past two months, they’ve hosted Russo Bros. Pizza Film School (a winning combination if we ever heard one) on Instagram TV and YouTube.

The filmmakers best known for Avengers: Endgame choose a film that’s inspired them, invite a guest (like Taika Waititi) to join them on the program, and encourage fans to discuss it all online. So far, they’ve featured films like The Evil Dead, The Empire Strikes Back, and No Country for Old Men.

The brothers’ goal is “to educate and spread some love to favorite classic films, as well as local pizzerias while movie lovers are stuck at home,” according to CNN. The duo have been cinephiles since their youth, when they’d spend hours at the multiplex.

Now, they see Pizza Film School as “a great opportunity to talk about the filmmaking process,” Joe Russo said, “and make it accessible to young filmmakers who are looking for a way to tell their own stories.”

If you’re looking for something to quell your quarantine boredom, this is just the ticket.
