This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Jay Ledbetter fills in for JD as we discuss Mandy and our Top 3 Nicolas Cage performances. We also feature an interview with Joe Lipsett who covered the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival for us, and he gives us his thoughts on this year’s fest.

Big thanks to Jay for stepping up this week, he was absolutely wonderful and did a great job as co-host. You could hardly tell it was his first time on the Main Show. In addition to the above, we also had fun talking about the craziest Cage performances for our poll. And let’s be honest, those are always the fun performances we love to see from Cage. So needless to say, it was an enjoyable discussion.

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!

Top 3 Nicolas Cage Performances (1:07:47)
Oh Nicolas Cage, how we love thee. Cage has been an eccentric and fascinating actor for some time now, and while his prominence in mainstream Hollywood is stifled these days, the man is still working hard and often. And his performance in Mandy is a great reminder of how truly skilled he is as an actor and why we wanted to reflect on his best performances over the years. That said, what would be your Top 3?
