This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Tom Cruise’s next auteur adventure, this year’s SAG winners and the great Denis Villeneuve as we anticipate his new film Dune: Part Two! We also feature an addendum to our Coen Brothers ranking from last week as we now include The Tragedy of Macbeth and Drive-Away Dolls.

– Tom Cruise (6:02)
Last week there was a report that Tom Cruise wanted to start working with auteurs once again, and it didn’t take long for him to find a new dance partner as it was announced his next film would be with Alejandro González Iñárritu. This actually makes a lot of sense and we talk about why that is the case. 

– SAG (15:45)
This year’s SAG winners were revealed over the weekend, so take a few minutes to talk about how it might affect the Oscars that take place here in just a few weeks.

– Coen Brothers (30:01)
Last week on the show, we did our consensus ranking of the Coen Brothers’ 18 films they made together. It was a lot of fun, however; we weren’t quite finished yet because on this week’s podcast we wanted to add The Tragedy of Macbeth and Drive-Away Dolls to the list. 

– Denis Villeneuve (57:21)
With Dune: Part Two coming to theaters this weekend, we wanted to look at the career of Denis Villeneuve and how he became a household name over the last decade. Even though we had movies before Prisoners (two of which are very good!), 2013 put him on the map in a very new way. And since then, Villenueve hasn’t looked back as he’s become one of the most prominent directors in Hollywood.
