This week on the InSession Film Podcast, our very own Ryan McQuade joins us to discuss Sian Heder’s beautiful film CODA and our Top 3 movies about pursuing music!

Big thanks to Ryan for joining us once again on the Main Show, even if he’s been around here a lot lately. We always love his insight and his passion for CODA made the conversation all the more fruitful. As big music fans, it’s always a great time when we dive back into the world of music movies, so this week’s Top 3 was nothing short of a great time.

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!

– Movie Review: CODA (7:03)
Director: Sian Heder
Writers: Sian Heder
Stars: Emilia Jones, Marlee Matlin, Troy Kotsur

– Notes / Discussion (1:19:12)

We had planned on Brendan giving his thoughts on The Suicide Squad after missing out last week (which is even noted in the intro of the episode), but as you’ll hear, our review of CODA went a little long. So we decided to forgo that for time and will plan on another Patreon Bonus Content episode soon. However, we do announce our latest Movie Series as we prepare for our 2003 Retrospective. Plus, we are still giving away t-shirts for iTunes reviews!

Top 3 Movies About Pursuing Music (1:39:54)
If you’ve been listening to the show for awhile, you’ve heard us talk about music movies many a times over the years, but we’re always trying to find new perspectives to talk about when it comes to that particular genre. And while this week’s topic is a bit more specific, it’s one we’ve never done before. The pursuit of music is something all musicians experience, and there are some fantastic movies that examine it directly. So, maybe not the broadest of topics, but a rich one nonetheless. That said, what would be your top 3?
