This week’s episode is brought to you by Grammarly. Download the app for free today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Spike Lee’s latest film BlackKklansman, starring John David Washington and Adam Driver. We are also joined by Bianca Garner from Filmotomy to talk about our Top 3 Spike Lee scenes. And since it’s the talk of the town, we give some thoughts on the changes made by The Academy this last week as well.

This summer has given us an endless barrage of great films and you can add BlackKklansman to that list. We had a lot of fun talking about what that film means for today, and why Spike Lee was the perfect voice for it. Speaking of, a huge thanks to Bianca for joining us this week as we talked about our favorite Lee moments in film. She was the perfect guest and we can’t wait to have her back on the show.

On that note, let us know what you think in the comment section and thanks for listening to the InSession Film Podcast!

– Notes / Thoughts on The Academy (42:33)

As you probably heard last week, The Academy made some massive changes to the Oscars ceremony and most people were not happy about it. Well, we give our thoughts on the matter, and spoiler alert, we weren’t big fans either.

Top 3 Spike Lee Scenes (56:08)
Spike Lee has been an important voice for almost 30 years now, and it’s wonderful that we still have someone like Mr. Lee making films that are as vital today as they were in 1989. He’s made over 25 feature length films at this point, so there are plenty of great scenes to choose from that help define his career, and the man himself. Hopefully we did him justice. That said, what would be your Top 3?
