"Arrival," "Loving," "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" and "Short Term 12" Grierson & Leitch

    • TV & Film

Like many of you, we're still trying to process everything that has happened since we last did a podcast. Movies work best when they are a distraction from life that can also help illuminate life: When you write about movies, you are really writing about life. That's all sorts of Super Serious Pablum that ultimately just adds up to: We're not going to let the horror that Tuesday night has conjured stop us from babbling like idiots about movies. We hope you don't mind. Thus! This week we dig into the surprise science-fiction hit "Arrival" starring Amy Adams, the Jeff Nichols drama "Loving" and Ang Lee's 120-fps war drama "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk." Then, in our Reboot segment, we look at the foster care drama "Short Term 12," starring Brie Larsen right before she won her Oscar. Timestamps: 6:15 "Arrival" 21:38 "Loving" 38:50 "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" 49:45 "Short Term 12" We hope you enjoy. Let us know what you think @griersonleitch on Twitter, or griersonleitch@newrepublic.com. As always, give us a review on iTunes with the name of a movie you'd like us to review, and we'll discuss it on a later podcast. Also, Grierson is our first American President who has starred in multiple soft-core pornographic films.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
