Podcast: The Lighthouse / Persona – Episode 349

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Robert Eggers’ latest film The Lighthouse and continue our Ingmar Bergman Movie Series by discussing his 1966 film Persona! JD also gives his thoughts on Little Monsters, Zombieland: Double Tap and Crawl.
No guest this week, but wow, what a fun show. We didn’t plan this intentionally, but The Lighthouse and Persona are the most thematically apt pairing we’ve ever had on the podcast. We even joked about how Persona is essentially a prequel to The Lighthouse. Sometimes the stars align in the right ways and the universe comes together, and that was certainly the case on this episode. So, that is to say, we really enjoyed digging into these two films and what it all means.
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!

– Notes / Little Monsters / Zombieland: Double Tap / Crawl (47:33)
As noted above, JD finally caught up with the zombie comedies Little Monsters and Zombieland: Double Tap, as well as the hurricane-alligator disaster film Crawl. Sometimes you just need to kick back, grab a bag of popcorn and enjoy yourself. That’s pretty much what these films have to offer.
