Episode notes

Today’s movie premiered at Cannes 2022 and was the Cambodian entry for Best International Feature at this year’s Oscars (though it didn’t make it off the shortlist). It follows newcomer’s Park Ji-Min’s Freddie as she returns to Korea for the first time since her adoption as a baby by French parents. Our guest is comedian Josh Johnson, whose new special Up Here Killing Myself is on Peacock. After unpacking this new movie, everyone tries their best at a brand-new (and extremely trivial) movie trivia game about movie time jumps.
