List: Top 3 Jonathan Demme Films

List: Top 3 Jonathan Demme Films

This week on Episode 219 of the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed our Top 3 Jonathan Demme films. For obvious reasons, this discussion was sadly bittersweet. We were sad to hear about the passing of Demme and our condolences go out to the family and friends of the great Jonathan Demme. We did our best to honor this great filmmaker by discussing our favorite films in his very diverse filmography, and while loved discussing these movies, we wish it was under different circumstances.

On that note, which Jonathan Demme movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

*Keep in mind we have different criteria for our lists as well*


1) Rachel Getting Married
2) The Silence of the Lambs
3) Swimming to Cambodia

3) Something Wild

Honorable Mentions (Combined)
