Grierson's back! After a two-plus-week absence while traveling to the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto Film Festival, Grierson has returned to us! He gives us the best and worst films from each festival, and then dives right back in with discussions of two movies out this weekend. First, it's the Jennifer Lopez stripper-crime-drama "Hustlers," and then it's the adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel "The Goldfinch."
Our reboot isn't messing around either: It's the Federico Fellini classic "8 1/2."
31:22 "The Goldfinch"
46:19 "8 1/2"
Isn't it nice having Grierson back? Thanks again to Bilge Ebiri and Jessica Pressler for hanging with us in his stead.
Thanks to Dylan Mayer and My Friend Mary, both of which are wonderful, for the music.
We hope you enjoy. Let us know what you think @griersonleitch on Twitter, or email@example.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.
