This week on Extra Film, Ryan and Jay discuss the next film in their Robert Altman Movie Series with Nashville and they also review True History of the Kelly Gang!
Entering what might be the most important review of the Altman Movie Series, the boys decided to bring on Nashville film critic Cory Woodroof to talk about the masterpiece Nashville. In this examination of the country music business, Altman together an all-star cast to tell his opus. Along with this extraordinary talent, he brought in his same social and political bite to tell a tale about the price it takes to become famous. It was a wonderful discussion and Cory was a delight to have on the show.
Then, the discussion moved to True History of the Kelly Gang, the latest film from director Justin Kurzel. Known for gorgeous looking pictures with tons of story issues, Kurzel looks to go for a safer choice in a bio-pic in which he is familiar with the source material. While neither cared too much for this film, Ryan seemed to go off on the director and his style. This left for some entertaining dialogue among the two hosts. But with mostly negative reactions to the movie, they do agree on MacKay, who is become a star before our eyes.
Thanks for listening!
