Podcast: Adopt a Highway / Long Day’s Journey Into Night – Extra Film
This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, Ryan and Jay discuss Adopt a Highway, and Long Day’s Journey Into Night.
Another interesting pair of films from the Extra Film guys. Adopt a Highway is the directorial debut from actor Logan Marshall Green starring one of the best actors working today, Ethan Hawke. Following up his wonderful 2018 year, Hawke gives another wonderful performance the guys have fallen in love with. But while agreeing on Hawke, the guys have an thought-provoking discussion over on the movie and argue a little over the film’s overall themes. Then in the back half of the episode, the guys review their second Chinese film of the year in Long Day’s Journey Into Night. While the film has been highly reviewed, it has been divisive, with one of the Extra Film gentlemen not like it at all. This lead to a respectful, deep debate over the visually stunning international film.
On that note, have fun with this week’s Extra Film segment and let us know what you think in the comment section below. Thanks for listening!
