Podcast: Licorice Pizza / The Tragedy of Macbeth – Episode 462

This week’s episode is brought to you by Warby Parker. Sign up today and get a 5 day Home Try-On, complete with 5 pairs of glasses to choose!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest in Licorice Pizza and Joel Coen’s new film The Tragedy of Macbeth! Plus, a few thoughts on Swan Song and The King’s Man.

It’s not often you get to talk about PTA and the Coen brothers (albeit it just Joel in this particular case) in one episode. A few week’s ago we got to review films from Steven Spielberg and Guillermo del Toro, which was very exciting, and now we get to continue that trend with two of our very favorite filmmakers working today. Licorice Pizza and The Tragedy of Macbeth may have very little in common, but that just added to the fun we had on this episode.

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!

– Notes / Swan Song / The King’s Man (59:22)
For our break segment this week, JD offers up his thoughts on the Benjamin Cleary film Swan Song, starring Mahershala Ali and also the latest film in the Kingsman Universe The King’s Man. While imperfect, both have compelling qualities that make them worth your time. Swan Song, especially, invokes some fascinating conversation around love and morality.
