This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Ryan fills in for Brendan as we review Claire Denis’ new film Both Sides of the Blade and continue our Studio Ghibli Movie Series with the 1993 TV film Ocean Waves!

A big thanks to Ryan for filling in this week, especially since he’s a big Studio Ghibli fan and we’re talking about one of the lesser seen Ghibli films. Apologies to Ryan for that, but he was a wonderful co-host as he always is and we had a great time talking about the melodrama of these two movies. Both Sides of the Blade and Ocean Waves weirdly have a lot in common, and while we didn’t intentionally plan for that, it’s always fun when it works out that way.

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!
