This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Ryan McQuade fills in for Brendan and we are joined by Walter Vinci from First Time Watchers to discuss Jeremy Saulnier’s Hold the Dark. We also discuss our Top 3 Netflix films and JD gives us his thoughts on Mandy after missing last week’s show.

Big thanks to Ryan for stepping up this week, he was absolutely wonderful and did a great job as co-host. An even bigger thank you to Walter for showing us grace, as it took way to long to finally get him on the show. As you may know, we love the guys over at FTW, but sadly we had never featured Wally on the show. So we were glad to remedy that issue and he did not disappoint. We had a lot of fun talking about Hold the Dark and Netflix, and we hope you enjoy listening to it.

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!

Top 3 Netflix Films (1:06:42)
The topic of Netflix “original” content has been a polarized subject over the last few years as their films have varied greatly in quality. Some are very good, others have been..well let’s just say less than stellar. But given their upcoming schedule, now is the time to discuss the best films from what could be considered “Phase 1” of Netflix original films. If their fall slate, such as Roma, 22 July and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, is what we hope it will be, 2018 could be a major turning point for Netflix in the film community. For now though, we talk about the best films they have to this point, and we think you’ll enjoy what cultivated for our lists. That said, what would be your Top 3?
