This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss George Clooney’s latest directorial effort with The Midnight Sky and our Top 3 against the grain movies of 2020! We also talk She Dies Tomorrow and Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets.

JD is back in the co-host chair this week and what a time to come back given his thoughts on The Midnight Sky and how that ties to our Top 3. It was serendipitous indeed. These are some of our favorite episodes we get to do each year as we begin to wind down our yearly campaign. Our “against the grain” movies may not end up in our Top 10, but it’s always fun to reflect back on those experiences that we enjoyed, even if most others did not share that experience. It certainly made for an impassioned show.

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 2020 (1:27:17)
For clarity, as we’ve done in the past with this topic, these are the movies we liked more than most people, which should make the feedback interesting since the nature of this topic means that we’ll be in the minority opinion regarding these films. But, that’s also what makes it a lot of fun at the same time. That said, what would be your Top 3?
