This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Barry Jenkins’ follow up to his Oscar winning film Moonlight with If Beale Street Cold Talk. We also discuss Adam McKay’s Vice and our Top 3 comedic scenes of 2018.

It’s always a good week when Jenkins comes to town. How does one follow up after winning Best Picture with their first major film? Well, he only makes one of the most beautiful films of 2018 with Beale Street. We had a great time discussing why and it made up for whatever McKay was attempting to do with Vice. Oh, and we laughed a lot during the Top 3.

That said, 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 Comedic Scenes of 2018 (48:41)
2018 was full of great humor and films that featured some hysterical moments. Pure comedies like Game Night and Blockers had plenty of biting humor to offer, but others like The Favourite, Blindspotting and Avengers: Infinity War also gave us some of the best scenes of the entire year. Either way, no matter your cup of tea, there were plenty of times to laugh in the cinema throughout the year. That said, what would be your Top 3?
