Podcast: The Laundromat / The Seventh Seal – Episode 347

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Steven Soderbergh’s latest in The Laundromat and we begin our Ingmar Bergman Movie Series with his 1957 film The Seventh Seal! JD also gives his thoughts on Yesterday and Official Secrets.
As we get deeper into Awards season, we’ll see more and more films from prominent filmmakers as they make their way into the conversation. Unfortunately, things will come to a stand still with Soderbergh and The Laundromat, which is ironic since High Flying Bird is still one of the better underseen films of the year. Despite that, though, we had a lot of fun talking about Soderbergh as he’s one of our favorite filmmakers out there right now. The highlight of this week has to be the start of our Ingmar Bergman Movie Series. We’ve been itching for this for quite some time and it’s finally here.
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!
