Episode notes


Let’s all take a metaphorical and horrifying trip down to Tampa as we discuss Janicza Bravo’s Zola. Based on the viral Twitter thread by A’Ziah “Zola” King, the Maximum Film! gang dissects the movie and discerns whether the filmmaker was successful in adapting the thread to the big screen. Plus, they answer a call from the ‘Hotline’ about their favorite “Up All Night” movies. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Adam Driver sings in an “interesting” position for the movie Annette, Colman Domingo is exhausted by depictions of Black trauma, and Tom Hardy gets a “story by” credit on the Venom sequel.

Staff Picks:
Ify – The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
Drea – Werewolves Within
Alonso – Parents

With Ify Nwadiwe, Drea Clark, and Alonso Duralde
