This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Kelly Reichardt’s latest film First Cow and continue our Charlie Chaplin Movie Series with his 1940 film The Great Dictator!

We’ve been looking forward to this show for quite some time. We talked about First Cow back in January of 2019 as we initially expected to see the film last year. However, it was moved to this spring before getting pushed back once again due to COVID-19. And after months and months of anticipation, it finally came out on VOD and boy was it worth the wait. We had a blast talking talking it as well as Chaplin’s The Great Dictator, which arguably features his most iconic sequence with its inspiring monologue at the end.

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 / Relic / Babyteeth / Palm Springs (41:31)
As we’ve done the last few months, we continued to offer up thoughts on the films we’ve been watching recently. This week both Brendan and JD caught up with Natalie Erika James’ Relic and the discussion was slightly different than what was heard on Extra Film. Brendan also gave his thoughts on Shannon Murphy’s Babyteeth and the Andy Samberg-starring Palm Springs.
