Episode notes

Before Sunrise

Thus begins another dive into a beloved franchise. This time we’re dipping our toes into the “Before Trilogy,” and of course we begin with the first installment, Before Sunrise. We are joined by the hilarious comedian and Drea Clark’s friend from college, Michelle Biloon. We discuss Ethan Hawke’s annoying character, Julie Delpy being the antithesis of a “Manic Pixie Dream Girl,” and Richard Linklater’s obsession with time. Plus, we answer a question from the ‘Who Shotline’ about the films we love but do not understand. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Zac Efron is going to star in the Three Men and a Baby remake and Disney is potentially stopping production on all back catalog physical media releases.

Alonso – A Midnight Clear
Michelle – The Long Kiss Goodnight and The Old Guard.

With Ify Nwadiwe, Drea Clark, Alonso Duralde, and Michelle Biloon.
