Podcast: Transcendence, Top 3 Directorial Debuts, Enemy – Episode 61
This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Blake has the week off, but James Shaw joins us once again to help us review Transcendence featuring a regular-faced Johnny Depp and of course, the Morgan Freeman voiceover. Going off of that, we discuss our Top 3 Directorial Debuts, since Transcendence was directed by rookie Wally Pfister, which led into some great conversation about some fantastic directors. We then move into one of the more polarizing films we’ve seen all year with our review of Enemy starring the wonderful Jake Gyllenhaal. And as usual, we top off the show with Movie We’ve Seen This Week.
James was once again fantastic on the show, especially holding down the fort in Blake’s absence this week. Our review of Transcendence was fun, but our conversation about Enemy was just freaking fantastic. We dove really deep into what the film could possibly mean and why it’s themes could be important for the modern man. James really brought some meat to the table on that one and it ended up being one of our favorite conversations in recent memory, which is really what makes a film like that fun.
Anyway, check it out and have fun listening to this week’s podcast. Let us know what you think in the comment section below and thanks for listening!
– Transcendence Movie Review (5:39)
– Top 3 Directorial Debuts (33:30)
To Wally Pfister’s credit, a $100 Million studio film, with the premise of Transcendence, wouldn’t have been easy for any first-time director. However, for this week’s Top 3, we discuss some of the best directorial debuts we’ve seen over the years. For some of these directors, it’s not only their first film but arguably their best work too. There are many great films to choose from and we had a fun discussion about it. What would be your Top 3?
– Enemy Movie Review (1:00:35)
WARNING: To really discuss this film properly, we dive deep into many SPOILERS of the film. There is a lot to chew on here, and we really go for it.
