Children of Men

This week we've got the multi-talented actor, writer, producer Cleopatra Coleman. You may know her best from her role as Erica on the beloved 'The Last Man on Earth' with Will Forte. But she's on the show this week to talk about Alfonso Cuarón's masterpiece, Children of Men. Cleopatra discusses the direct influence this film had on her new movie, the apocalyptic thriller that she wrote and produced, Hover. They discuss what the future looks like in both of these films and how the advertising and technology affect the lives of the characters. Cleopatra opens up about writing her first feature and the relationship she had with the film's director. She also reveals that she actually auditioned for a role in Children of Men. Plus, April discusses what went into the famous one take finale shot of the film and how it all went wrong.

You can watch Hover in select theaters now. It will be available on VOD on July 3.

Rear Window

We are so lucky this week to have TV creator, writer, and director Veena Sud on the program. She's most well known for creating the TV show, The Killing. But she's got a new show out now called Seven Seconds. It follows the aftermath of the death of a 15 year old black cyclist who is killed in a hit and run accident by a white police officer. She's also on the program to discuss Alfred Hitchcock's classic Rear Window. Veena elaborates on the effect that Hitchcock has had on her career, and how it has influenced her being drawn to darker stories. She reveals that she's just completed her first feature about a teenage girl who accidentally kills her best friend. She also tells a wonderful story of working with the late Jonathan Demme on her show Seven Seconds. This is a truly engrossing episode that deals with the craft behind writing and cultivating a meaningful story.

You can watch Seven Seconds on Netflix.

Ocean's 8

This episode is a hoot and a half! The gang is joined by Bowen Yang and Matt Rogers of the Las Culturistas podcast. The program starts very strong with Matt's obsessive "Zapruder-ing" of the A Star Is Born trailer. They then go over the newest heist film Ocean's 8. The room is very divided on this one with all of them returning to the question - "Is there a conflict in this entire movie?" Plus, many of the individuals on this podcast admit to a deep love for the much maligned Norbit. Also, we have a special segment with Drea Clark. She interviews director Bobby Miller about his new film, The Cleanse, with Anjelica Huston and Johnny Galecki. This is a wild episode and is required listening!

In news, Eddie Murphy with play Rudy Ray Moore, Hereditary gets a D+ Cinemascore, and male movie critics outnumber female movie critics nearly 4 to 1.

Death Becomes Her

We've got a packed house today with Angela Trimbur, Lauren Parks, and Jenée LaMarque of the new film The Feels. The three women all act in the film with Jenée directing and co-writing with Lauren. They're on the show to discuss Robert Zemeckis' Death Becomes Her. Although not similar in tone or genre, April and the guests quickly find that both of these films are united in their commentary on women's bodies. The Feels analyzes the shame felt by women unable to have an orgasm. While Death Becomes Her addresses the pressure women face to constantly look young - in, albeit, a very violent and supernatural way. Plus, they all discuss the special effects, the production design, and, of course, the delicious performance of Meryl Streep as the aging movie star, Madeline Ashton.

The Feels is available on Amazon.

Wake In Fright

This week the gang is lucky enough to be joined by Britain's own, "The Beef and Dairy Network Podcast" host, Ben Partridge. It's a staff choice episode this week, and this time it's April's pick. She chose the 1971 Australian psychological thriller, Wake In Fright. The gang takes apart the film and what makes it so relevant to today's society. Alonso even calls it "toxic masculinity, the movie." The film can be a bit brutal and the crew makes sure to touch upon those elements, including the infamous kangaroo hunting scene. Plus, in celebration of having a beef expert on the show, the gang discusses eating meat in cinema. This segment is obviously titled "Weird Meat."

In news, Jeremy Renner broke both his arms shooting Tag, Brett Ratner is telling people he's directing Rush Hour 4, and Benedict Cumberbatch protects a cyclist from muggers.
