Topics covered include: chasing the Bergman closeup, preferred aspect ratios, why Hereditary is unabashedly a horror movie, talking to press while intoxicated, the “trick” of Midsommar, the scene from Carrie that still gives Ari nightmares, dealing with the consequences of an A24 marketing stunt you did not consent to, the silver lining on a ‘D’ Cinemascore, why films are meant to be watched more than once, and the magic of being in dialogue with other filmmakers across history—and becoming more yourself in the process.
Topics covered include: lies we tell our families, the gift of cold hard cash, visiting Disney as an adult, pet monkeys (dream versus reality), Murakami, the Malcolm X watch, LA car culture, universality through specificity, connecting the dots, and the longing to know the places our parents' parents once called home.
Topics covered include: Bob Fosse's influence, the magic of Singing In The Rain (1952), strategies for evading journalists' questions, sequels that aren't really sequels, the CGI challenge of youthifying De Niro, Pesci, and Pacino in The Irishman, and the piece of advice from Arthur Penn that Marty will never forget: “Don't lose that amateur status.”
Topics covered include: shooting a prison movie in space, the dark romance of L.A., good bread, why Claire went crazy working for Wim Wenders, films that must be viewed in the dark, shooting with yellow light, the romanticization of film stock, Tarkovsky’s Stalker, and the alchemy of cinema.
Topics covered include: the surreal experience of overnight fame, Spanish movie marketing, establishing boundaries, theater people, drinking beers with Elaine May, Jonah's fear of winged animals, on-demand pushups, degenerate gambling, and why everyone should own a digital copy of Mid90s.
Topics covered include: the process of scoring a film, growing up in a house filled with music, cinematic rhythm, cheesy scores, creating the sounds of an urban nightmare, and why electronic music is the best game ever.
Topics covered include: the highs and lows of being a young actor, Elsie’s audition for Eighth Grade, Bo Burnham’s Vine career (RIP), why social media should have stopped at Myspace, the impossibility of not saying “Um” and “Like,” Dungeons & Dragons, the Golden State Killer, coming-of-age on screen, and why we never stop craving connection—regardless of age.
Topics covered include: the nuances of American Sign Language, Icelandic stand-up comedy, fairies, trolls, superhuman athleticism, archaic medical treatments, and what Fred would do if he could travel back in time without altering history.
Topics covered include: their new film Blaze, summers in Nova Scotia, art that tells the truth, the beauty of beginner’s mind, Alia’s painting, career advice from Steve McQueen, and the importance of giving it all away.
Topics covered include: Paul's unexpected career trajectory, ambiguous endings, stealing from the best, the challenges of writing without "nighttime additives," and what it took for Paul to finally make First Reformed—the movie he’s been waiting his whole life to make.
 Topics covered include: Toni Collette, Toni Collette, and falling in love with Toni Collette at age 10 after renting Clockwatchers from a Nashville Blockbuster.
Topics covered include: the internet, teenagers today, how to talk about a moment that is already a parody of itself, the FKA Twigs/Anderson .Paak/Spike Jonze Apple ad, whether or not Deadpool gets it, why Jerrod hasn’t seen Bottle Rocket, the filmmaking of Steve McQueen, Jerrod and Bo’s dispositional differences, Snoop Dogg’s new gospel album, the performance of an interview, and the value of not being present.
