SOMEONE ELSE’S MOVIE is just what it says on the label: Each week, an actor, director, screenwriter, critic or industry observer will discuss a film that he or she admires, but had no hand in making. Hosted as genially as possible by Norm Wilner.
Virginia Abramovich on Memento
Writer, producer and director Virginia Abramovich -- whose eerie first feature Between Waves arrives on VOD today -- digs into Christopher Nolan's corkscrewing 2000 thriller Memento. Your genial host Norm Wilner knows this movie backwards and forwards.
Lina Roessler on Border
Actor and filmmaker Lina Roessler (Best Sellers) is here to dissect Border, Ali Abbasi’s 2018 mystery about a Swedish border guard with a gift for smelling deception. Your genial host Norm Wilner strongly advises you watch the movie before you listen to this one.
Jeremy Workman on The Heiress
With his new documentary Lily Topples the World streaming on Discovery+ in the US and coming to Canada next week, documentary filmmaker Jeremy Workman is here to sing the praises of The Heiress, William Wyler's 1949 drama starring Olivia de Havilland as a woman at a crossroads. Your genial host Norm Wilner is on the edge of his seat.
John Ross Bowie on Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood
John Ross Bowie has a new podcast, Household Faces -- where he interviews Hollywood’s most recognizable and iconic character actors about their lives and work -- so he's back to throw down for Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood, which is sort of about that too. Your genial host Norm Wilner hates that movie like Cliff Booth hates hippies, which is really saying something.
Carly Pope on Boogie Nights
Actor, writer and producer Carly Pope -- currently starring in Neill Blomkamp’s Demonic in theatres and on VOD -- is here to celebrate Boogie Nights, the epic 1997 dramedy that put Paul Thomas Anderson on the map and made people take Mark Wahlberg seriously. Your genial host Norm Wilner is still surprised about that last one.
Jonathan Levine on Billy Madison
Director Jonathan Levine (Nine Perfect Strangers) shares his undying love for Billy Madison, the film that made Adam Sandler a movie star. Your genial host Norm Wilner is more than happy to leverage this into a consideration of how Sandler's much more interesting when he's not allowed to wear cargo pants.
Great Host, Amazing Guests, Incredible Range of Films
