Podcast: Inside Llewyn Davis / 2013 Retrospective – Episode 518

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, it’s our 2013 Retrospective as we review Inside Llewyn Davis and revisit our Top 10 Movies of 2013! Plus, we have a *big* announcement at the beginning of the show.

This week’s show is all kinds of sentimental for us. We launched InSession Film back in 2013 and in a week’s time we’ll be celebrating our 10th anniversary. So revisiting the films from our first year was really fun and nostalgic. It’s a great year and Inside Llewyn Davis is without question among the best film to come out in 2013. It’s also serendipitous because we are ending where we began. This show marks the end of an era. The podcast isn’t going anywhere, but our announcement at the beginning of the show articulates a new phase that will begin next week.

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!

– 2013 Retrospective (1:29:51)

As noted above, it was really fun to look back at the films of 2013, which we covered in real time when they initially came out. It’s already a great year for film, but it holds a special place in our hearts with it being the first. That aside though, there’s so much to love with films like Her, 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, Nebraska, Before Midnight, The Act of Killing, and of course Inside Llewyn Davis, among many others. Spring Breakers is polarizing, but a film we quite loved and champion. Others like Short Term 12, Like Father Like Son, Rush, Stories We Tell and Captain Phillips also stand out that year. It was also a noteworthy year for comedies with The World’s End, About Time, Frances Ha and This is the End leading the way. And hey, we don’t love The Wolf of Wall Street, but we recognize most of you do love that film. Either way, there’s plenty to love about 2013 and we had a great time talking about why it’s a great year for film.
