Podcast: Uncut Gems / Clemency – Extra Film
This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, Ryan and Jay discuss Uncut Gems and Clemency.
With Uncut Gems, we get the much-anticipated follow-up to the Safdie Brother’s 2017 thriller Good Time. Though Good Time seemed a divisive film by some, Uncut Gems has been seen as one of the best films from 2019, with one of the best performances of the year from Adam Sandler. There was a lot to tackle with this review and the guys came ready with extremely positive takes on it.
In the back half of the episode, the guys talk about the prison drama, Clemency. This one premiered back at the Sundance Film Festival in early 2019, but has garnered a lot of buzz, espcially for stars Alfre Woodard and Aldis Hodge. Not a long conversation from the boys but lead to some interesting thoughts.
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!
