This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Sean Baker’s latest film Red Rocket and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut in The Lost Daughter! Plus, we also dive into our Top 3 against the grain movies of 2021.
This week’s episode is jam-packed as we near the end of our campaign for this year. Both Red Rocket and The Lost Daughter are fascinating films to talk about given their central characters and how off-putting they can be at times. It’s hard to say fully, but it’s possible they do have some impact at the InSession Film Awards. And it’s always a fun time when we get to talk about our favorite against the grain 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!

For our break segment this week, JD and Brendan talk about the celebratory documentary Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts and how it takes us all on a trip down memory lane. It’s hard to believe that the first Potter film is 20-years-old, but it’s a fascinating doc given all the stories, insight and emotional in entails.

As we’ve done in the past with this topic, these are the movies we liked more than most people based on either the reviews or the general feedback. It’s also interesting to see the feedback given the nature of this topic. But that’s also what makes it a lot of fun at the same time. That said, what would be your top 3?
