This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we review Todd Field’s new film Tár and continue our Studio Ghibli Movie Series with Hayao Miyazaki’s 2009 film Ponyo! Plus, a few brief thoughts on Triangle of Sadness, Catherine Called Birdy and Moonage Daydream.

A big thanks to Ryan McQuade for filling in for JD during the Tár conversation. Coming off the heels of the Middlesburg Film Festival, Ryan was very busy but still made time to fill and we are always grateful. His passion for the film was very welcomed and it made for a great conversation. Ponyo, on the other hand, we had a very interesting response to that we may not have expected.

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!
