This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we review Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion and continue our Federico Fellini Movie Series by discussing his 1960 film La Dolce Vita! Plus a few thoughts on The World is Not Enough and The Big Lebowski.
With theaters shut down, streaming services have (understandably) become the crux many have gone to for entertainment and movies. And given the current circumstances, it seems as if virus/pandemic movies have been a specific topic of interest for a lot of people. So, we thought we would jump on that bandwagon as well this week and talk about one of our favorite directors working right now. We’ve always liked Contagion, but in 2020, it’s even more eerie. Also, brace yourself for some James Bond hot takes later in the show. We apologize in advance (sort of).
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!

– Notes / The Big Lebowski / The World is Not Enough / Pirates of the Caribbean (43:39)
As noted above, since it was talked about on our latest Extra Film, JD figured he would offer up his thoughts on The Big Lebowski as well. And as promised, his thoughts on The World is Not Enough is sure to stir the hornets nest a little bit. It’s not the most liked James Bond film, but that isn’t stopping him (and spoiler alert, another IF member as well).
