This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we review the latest film from Yorgos Lanthimos in The Favourite and the best animated film of all-time according to Film Twitter in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. We also start our year-end Top 3 lists of 2018 by discussing our favorite Against the Grain Movies – aka the movies we liked more than most.

This week’s show is slightly longer than the last few weeks, but we had an extensive conversation on The Favourite that we thought was necessary given our love for Lanthimos and everything that film has to offer. We also brought back our Top 3 segment this week, so there was a lot of ground to cover, but we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

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 Against the Grain Movies of 2018 (46:22)
It’s that time of year again! This year we are starting our year-end Top 3 lists by talking about our favorite “against the grain” movies of 2018, aka the movies we liked more than most. Of course, there are a few ways to look at that topic whether it be the critical consensus on a given film or the direction of discourse. Either way, there are those movies each year where you either love or hate a film that just doesn’t align with consensus. That said, what would be your Top 3?
