Podcast: The Gift, Top 3 Movie Stalkers – Episode 131

This podcast is brought to you by Jabbercast. One of the best podcast apps on the market today, listen to InSession Film on Jabbercast today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Justin from The Walking Naked podcast joins us once again, this time for a fun discussion on Joel Edgerton’s The Gift and our Top 3 movie stalkers. We also do a couple of mini reviews of Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Duff.

Justin was once again a fantastic guest and he brought some really interesting, but great choices for this week’s top 3 segment. We unfortunately had to cut out some films he brought up in the discussion segment, but we will have it available for this week’s bonus content. Also, don’t miss this week’s Extra Film segment, where we discussed Cop Car and The Look of Silence!

Anyway, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting of the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 3 Movie Stalkers (35:03)
Well, as we found out during this discussion, apparently a lot of movie stalkers were prominent during the 90’s. Who knew? This top 3 was a bit interesting too, as we all had a little bit of different criteria which made for some really diverse lists. At any rate, what would be your Top 3?

– Mini Reviews (1:27:15)

This week we had planned to also review The Man from U.N.C.L.E. but unfortunately only Brendan was able to see it. So we decided to do a couple of mini reviews in which JD also talked about The Duff.

  1. Speaking to the film’s ambiguous ending (and trying my best to stay away from any possible spoilers), I think it perfectly addressed the theme that a toxic idea left to fester leads to unfortunate results. Things left to gnaw away at you really mess with your psyche (like Robin’s paranoia). A particular character’s life falls apart because of an idea, and that concept comes full circle at the end of the movie as that character plants an idea in another character’s mind to stew and smolder. In this case, ambiguity is a viciously fitting punishment.

    I’m not too sure how much sense this makes for people who haven’t seen the movie, I just didn’t want to put in names and spoil something haha.

    Awesome review guys 🙂 I really needed to have a sort of “cool down” after seeing this movie and being a jumble of nerves the entire time lol

    • Hey Sydney, thanks for the comment! And I completely agree with you, I love how that notion is implemented in the final act, it certainly adds more layers to the ideas we talked about in the review. And depending on your view, it could change how you perceive the characters, only making the film even more fascinating.

      At any rate, thanks for listening and love the comment! Thanks again!
