List: Top 3 “Against the Grain” Movies of 2017

This week on Episode 254 of the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed our top 3 “against the grain” movies, or in other words, the movies we didn’t like that most loved / movies we liked that most didn’t care for much. The feedback to this week’s Top 3 should be fun since the nature of this topic means that we’ll be in the minority opinion regarding these films. But, that’s also what makes it a lot of fun at the same time. On that note, what movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

1) Lady MacBeth
