This week on Episode 448 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by our review of The Card Counter, we discussed our favorite Oscar Isaac scenes in film. As we joked about on the show, it may be a little too early in Isaac’s career for this, but this is just Part 1 of hopefully an unlimited part series talking about his best scenes. Perhaps it’s because the timing of his rise in popularity correlates with our own growth as a podcast/film website, but his resume is somewhat nostalgic for us. We love Isaac and what he brings to his roles. There ore many, many great scenes to consider for this list, and boy did we have a great time talking them. That said, here are our lists:
(Note: Please keep in mind that we each had different criteria for our selections)
1) Gorfein Apartment Scene – Inside Llewyn Davis
2) Roundtable Dinner Scene – A Most Violent Year
3) Nathan / Caleb Debate Consciousness and Sexuality – Ex Machina
1) Audition Scene – Inside Llewyn Davis
2) The Art of the Sale – A Most Violent Year
3) Standard First Meets Driver – Drive
Honorable Mentions (Combined)
Various other scenes in Inside Llewyn Davis, Ex Machina, Drive, A Most Violent Year, Robin Hood, Annihilation, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Triple Frontier, The Card Counter, 10 Years, Sucker Punch, The Two Faces of January
