This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Brian Rowe joins us to discuss the beach thriller Old and our Top 3 M. Night Shyamalan scenes!

Big thanks to Brian for joining us on the show this week. It’s been a pleasure to feature his work on the site, but equally rewarding to hear his voice as we talk about all of the good and bad that comes with Shyamalan. Old has sparked a lot of discourse and memes, and there was no shortage of fun as we dove into it as well.

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 M. Night Shyamalan Scenes (1:21:05)
Say what you will about M. Night Shyamalan, but he’s directed some great films and has some iconic moments on his resume. Even recently, while his work doesn’t quite live up to his early years, there are some great scenes in his movies to consider here. No one makes movies like Shyamalan, and that’s what makes this exercise particularly exciting. His eye with the camera, the way he toys with genre tropes, the characters he’s written the last two decades, for better or worse he makes intriguing cinema. And boy did we have fun talking about that for our lists. That said, what would be your top 3?
