Podcast: A Ghost Story, Top 3 Movies About Time, Apur Sansar – Episode 232

This week’s episode is brought to you by the InSession Film Store! Get your IF t-shirt today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we get ghostly as we discuss David Lowrey’s new film A Ghost Story, starring Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara. We also discuss our Top 3 movies about time and we continue our Satyajit Ray Movie Series by concluding the Apu Trilogy with a review of Apur Sansar.

Hopefully this comes through in our discussion, but A Ghost Story truly is a unique experience that is unlike anything you’ll see this year. We can’t urge you enough to see it as soon as you can. Also, this week’s show is slightly bittersweet in the sense that we wrap up the Apu Trilogy, a series of films that we have really enjoyed talking about. However, there is more Satyajit Ray to come in the next few weeks!

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 3 Movies About Time (36:06)
Inspired by the way A Ghost Story uses time to tell its story, we felt compelled to talk about our favorite movies that feature time as a major element. This doesn’t necessarily mean “time travel” per se, although that could be a component, but there are several ways to utilize time in films. In fact, there are a few filmmakers that have made a career in exploring this, such as Christopher Nolan (as we talked about last week on the show) and Richard Linklater, for example. Hopefully our lists convey this and how time can be emulated in various ways. That said, what would be your top 3?
