Podcast: The Foreigner, Top 3 “Old Man with a Gun” Movies, Charulata – Episode 243
This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Allen Ray from the I Seen That Podcast joins us to review The Foreigner, starring the great Jackie Chan. Inspired by that film, we also talk about our favorite “old man with a gun” movies, as we were expecting it to resemble something like Taken with Liam Neeson. We also finish our Satyajit Ray Movie Series with his 1964 film Charulata!
Huge thanks to Allen for joining us, especially since he was calling in all the way from Thailand to talk to us. He was a great guest and we encourage you to check out his fun show. Also – thank you for your patience regarding our Satyajit Ray series, it took a little while to get to our last film, but we were thrilled to dive back into the world of Ray once again.
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 “Old Man with a Gun” Movies (36:40)
So, there’s a lot of irony in our Top 3 topic for this week’s show. As you’ll hear in our review of The Foreigner, Jackie Chan’s character doesn’t really use a gun as he seeks his revenge, despite our anticipation for that based off the film’s marketing. But we still thought it’d be fun to dive into this unique genre where we see older characters refusing to retire their guns as they go after the bad guys. That said, what would be your top 3?
