Podcast: Shoplifters / Creed II – Episode 302

This week’s episode is brought to you by Patreon and our awesome listner’s like you. Sign up today and get some cool rewards!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Palme d’Or winning film Shoplifters and also the latest sequel in the Rocky franchise, Creed II. During the break, we play catch up and go over a few documentaries we recently screened, and JD gives his thoughts on Ralph Breaks the Internet and Green Book.

After lots of celebrating last week on the show, we are back into the swing of things this week, minus our usual Top 3 segment. We haven’t done a list in awhile, but it’s that time of year where we are trying to catch up on all the great films being released leading up to the usual year-end wrap up fun. We’ll get back to our Top 3’s soon enough, but for now, lots of film 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!

– Notes / Catch-Up Reviews (39:07)

As mentioned above, we recently caught up with some documentaries that we wanted to talk about. Brendan finally saw Three Identical Strangers and Minding the Gap, while JD recommends Shirkers and They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead (both on Netflix). JD also saw Ralph Breaks the Internet and Green Book and thought it would be fun to give some thoughts on those two as well.
