Podcast: Honey Boy / The Report – Extra Film
This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, Ryan and JD discuss Honey Boy, and The Report.
With Jay out, JD steps in his place and joins Ryan to review two of the most anticipated films of the fall. First up is Honey Boy, the semi-autobiographical account of Shia LaBeouf’s childhood. With a screenplay written by LaBeouf, he goes back and forth through events leading to his current placement in life. Noah Jupe and Lucas Hedges play versions of him while he commits to the role of his dangerous father. Beautiful direction by Alma Har’el mixed with the raW performanceS and personal script led to one of the best discussion Ryan and JD have had together all year.
Then, in the back half of the episode, the guys discussed the newest political thriller,The Report. Based on the United States Torture report, Scott Z. Burns captures the perfect balance of making an entertaining film while also exposing the truth. With wonderful performances from Adam Driver and Annette Bening, The Report is a film not to miss, leading the guys to agree on both films this week in terms of quality.
