This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, Jay and Ryan start their James Bond series with the one that started it all, Dr. No. They also cover the new release, The Rhythm Section, which has some very timely parallels to the saga of 007.
There is no better time to look back at some of the cinematic classics of the past than January, when it is hard enough to find one decent new release to cover, let alone two. Enter Sean Connery as pop culture’s most famous spy. Jay and Ryan explore why this character connected so immediately with audiences and what makes Dr. No a little different from what the Bond series would later become.
After that discussion, the guys talk through The Rhythm Section, another spy film, starring Blake Lively. The film has been sitting on the shelf for a while and there were major production issues, but is it a classic January dump or is this a hidden gem early in the year? Listen to find out!
