Film still of soldier running from '1917'


We have some unique insight into this week’s film, the “one long take” World War One epic 1917, because we are joined by director and cinematographer Benjamin Kasulke (Banana Split). We also chat about other movies that appear to be one long take. And, of course, we’ve got staff picks.

In news, the Academy Award nominations have arrived and we correctly predicted the American Parasite remake.

Ify – My Year in Mensa
Alonso – Weathering With You
