Who Shot Ya?

Stan & Ollie

We've got a hot new episode of 'Who Shot Ya?' right out of the oven. Drea Clark is back in the studio to discuss the Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly two-hander, Stan & Ollie. The crew dissects the film and discusses the representation of filmmaking in movies. They also touch upon the theme of mixing business and friendship. The gang answers a question from the "Who Shot Line" that is perfectly tailored to April - "Which genre film performances have been overlooked?" And, as always, we've got staff picks.

In news, the Wu-Tang Clan is making a supernatural thriller called Angel of Dust, the Michael Jackson estate denounces the new revealing documentary Leaving Neverland, and the "Dark Universe" is dead.

Staff Picks:

Ricky - Ricky - Keepers of the Magic on Hulu
Alonso - Good pick: The Kid Who Would Be King. Bad pick: Serenity
Drea - Everything Beautiful Is Far Away
April - The Day of the Jackal

With April Wolfe, Drea Clark, Alonso Duralde, and Ricky Carmona.

The Silence of the Lambs

This week we have on the phenomenal writer of this year's The Post, Liz Hannah, to talk about Jonathan Demme's classic The Silence of the Lambs. Liz delves into her process and how she became a first time screenwriter with her script for The Post. She discusses the amazing talent of Meryl Streep, the story of Washington Post owner Kay Graham, and what it was like collaborating with Steven Spielberg. Plus, April and her dissect everything that makes The Silence of the Lambs a masterpiece. They discuss Anthony Hopkins performance (he only blinks once in the movie), the amazing craftsmanship of director Jonathan Demme, and the groundbreaking character of Clarice Starling played by Jodie Foster.

If you haven't seen it yet, go watch The Silence of the Lambs on HBO Go.

Also, you can still see The Post in theaters.
