This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Kornél Mundruczó’s Pieces of a Woman and our Top 5 Scenes of 2020! Plus, a few thoughts on the indie gem Driveways and the beautiful documentary The Truffle Hunters.
Well, this is it, the end of our 2020 campaign. What a strange year it was for film. It didn’t go as anticipated, but it still ended up being a decent little year for film. Things especially ramped up nicely in the last few months as awards contenders came to us rather consistently, and we saw some great films that we’ll no doubt talk about more next week on the show. However, this week’s episode works as a great appetizer as we end the year on a high note talking Pieces of a Woman, aka #JDTears The Movie. Our best scenes conversation may not have been as emotionally involved, but it was indeed a ton of fun as always as we look back at the very best of 2020.
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!

This week for our discussion segment, as noted above, Brendan and JD both give their thoughts on the indie gem Driveways, starring the late-great Brian Dennehy.

– Top 5 Scenes of 2020 (1:27:17)
Of all the year end lists we do, aside from our Top 10 of the year, this one is always the most difficult to conjure. But it’s also the most rewarding in many ways as well, as these are the moments that moved us the most, they were the most thought-provoking and they will come to define 2020 in film. Despite the unconventionality of the last year, there are countless individual scenes that could qualify for this list, but that’s what makes this list exciting in the end. Given that there are so many to choose from, the scenes that do make our list carry a lot of weight with us. That said, what would be your Top 5?
