Podcast: Hustlers / Top 3 Performances by Musicians – Episode 343

This week’s episode is brought to you by Bark Box. Order today and one free extra month!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss the Lorene Scafaria film Hustlers and our Top 3 performances by musicians in film. Brendan also offers up his thoughts on It Chapter Two and Late Night, while JD digs into Brittany Runs A Marathon and Blinded By the Light.

Since we had a lot to go over this week, there was no guest, but stay tuned to the very end of the show to hear a special feature with a new, younger guest that was very fun. We also quite enjoyed talking about Hustlers and musician-actors in film. It’s always exciting when you get surprises this time of year, and Hustlers was that film for 2019.

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!

Director: Lorene Scafaria
Writer: Jessica Pressler (magazine article), Lorene Scafaria (screenplay)
Stars: Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles |

– Notes / It Chapter Two / Late Night / Brittany Runs A Marathon / Blinded By the Light (44:33)
As mentioned above, both JD and Brendan had films they caught up with and wanted to talk about this week. For Brendan, he recently saw It Chapter Two and Late Night, and for JD he caught up with Brittany Runs A Marathon and Blinded By the Light. So, a pretty lengthy discussion segment, but hopefully an entertaining one as there was some light back and forth on It Chapter Two, and of course, JD’s thoughts on Brittany Runs A Marathon was quite the antithesis to Ryan and Jay’s Extra Film thoughts.

Top 3 Performances by Musicians (1:19:45)
It may not be their first passion, but there have been many tour de force performances in film by musicians over the years. Some have won Oscars. Others have been nominated for Oscars. And some are simply great, if not all-time, performances despite having no awards recognition. So, there are plenty to choose from for this list and we had some great fun with it. That said, what would be your Top 3?
