    Mank / Ma Rainey's Black Bottom / Sound of Metal

    Mank / Ma Rainey's Black Bottom / Sound of Metal

    David Fincher's big-screen exploration of Hollywood's "Golden Age" will, unfortunately, be a small-screen experience for most (it comes to Netflix this weekend), but Adam and Josh agree that MANK, his biopic about "Citizen Kane" scribe Herman Mankiewicz, still offers lots of pleasures, including Oldman's title performance and a stacked supporting cast. Another top-notch ensemble can be found in George C. Wolfe's adaptation of August Wilson's MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM, with an electrifying final performance from the late Chadwick Boseman alongside the always reliable Viola Davis. Adam also throws the new SOUND OF METAL into the mix for Golden Brick consideration.

    2020 Golden Brick Nominees / The Nest

    2020 Golden Brick Nominees / The Nest

    Previous winners of the Filmspotting Golden Brick Award - Sean Baker's "Tangerine," Bing Liu's "Minding the Gap," Anna Rose Holmer's "The Fits" - didn't just tell compelling stories; they told stories in vivid and surprising ways. It's what Adam and Josh have come to look for in a Brick nominee and it's a quality that all eleven of this year's nominees display—in ways as various as their styles and genres: a time-bending documentary, a retro sci-fi flick, a pair of intricately directed and timely dramas, a Coen Brothers-style thriller, a little of the old ultra-violence - and more. Plus, Adam and Josh revisit their review of Sean Durkin's THE NEST, which is available to rent on digital after playing in limited release.

    Stranger Than Paradise / Wolfwalkers / 8 From '84 Awards

    Stranger Than Paradise / Wolfwalkers / 8 From '84 Awards

    This year's 8 From '84 series - the sequel to last year's 9 From '99 - gave Adam and Josh a chance to revisit some nostalgic favorites ("Ghostbusters," "This is Spinal Tap," "Beverly Hills Cop"), fill in some blind spots (Leone's "Once Upon a Time in America," Coppola's "The Cotton Club") and complete a director's filmography (David Lynch's "Dune," check). This week, they wrap up the series with the film that launched the career of indie auteur Jim Jarmusch, STRANGER THAN PARADISE, and share their picks for the best performances, scenes and surprises from the 13-film series. Josh also recommends the latest from Cartoon Saloon and director Tomm Moore, WOLFWALKERS.

    Dune (8 From '84) / Twin Peaks Pilot (30th Anniv.)

    Dune (8 From '84) / Twin Peaks Pilot (30th Anniv.)

    David Lynch's '84 adaptation of Frank Herbert's DUNE ended the director's flirtation with mainstream Hollywood, but it remains a singular - and still Lynchian - vision. (And oh so spice-y.) Six years later, Lynch achieved cult legend status with the massively popular network TV series TWIN PEAKS. The movie-length pilot episode celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.

    Fall Movie Preview / Daughters of the Dust (Overlooked Auteurs)

    Fall Movie Preview / Daughters of the Dust (Overlooked Auteurs)

    The remaining months of the year won't have the same volume of buzzy festival pictures, star-studded Oscar bait or holiday blockbusters, but that doesn't mean there isn't lots to look forward to—if you know where to look. This week, Adam and Josh have their Top 5 Questions About the Fall(ish) Movie Season. Plus, the final film in the Overlooked Auteurs Marathon, Julie Dash's DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST, along with the Marathon-ending awards.

One of the firsts... One of the greatest

Filmspotting is an awesome podcasts about film. I have been listening to the podcasts since 2010 and the incombustible adam has always mantained a high level of quality whether accompanied by the vivacious Matty or the whimsical Josh. The structure of the podcast is friendly and amusing, and they also prove a vast knowledge from the podcasters with the top fives section. All in all a five star rating for a great podcast.
