Podcast: Lost in Translation / Top 3 “Brief Encounters” in Film – Episode 377

Podcast: Lost in Translation / Top 3 “Brief Encounters” in Film – Episode 377

This week’s episode is brought to you by Livestream for the Cure. Please be sure to donate and tune in later on in May!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we review Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation and discuss our Top 3 “brief encounters” in film! We also talk about a few movies we’ve seen recently while in quarantine.

Please forgive the length of this week’s show (and really the last few weeks), but since we’re all at home in the moment, we figured we would make best use of the time. And when you’re talking about great films like Lost in Translation, you tend to go longer than normal. It doesn’t help matters either when JD offers up hot takes on Netflix action movies.

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 / Discussion (49:05)

As noted above, we caught up with several films over the last week that we wanted to talk about. Both JD and Brendan saw Robert Altman’s The Long Goodbye and McCabe & Mrs. Miller, two films that many consider to be among Altman’s best films. JD also gave some thoughts on Netflix’s Extraction, Emma and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Top 3 “Brief Encounters” in Film (1:33:33)
This was such a challenging topic to narrow down. Depending on your criteria, just about every film made could technically be eligible as we see brief encounters all of the time. So, how does one go about coming up with just three picks? Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy but boy did we have a lot of fun talking about our picks. That said, what would be your Top 3?
