This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Nathan from The Empty Theater joins us to discuss Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy in The Revenant as well as the best shot films of 2015. We finish off the show talking about The Revenant director, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, who has become a very polarizing director over the last few years with a lot of hate being thrown his way.

Big thanks to Nathan for joining us this week, his first time on the show and he was a great guest. The Revenant and Iñárritu both won last night at The Golden Globes and it caused a big stir online with a lot of people so our conversations this week on both the film and it’s director seems very appropriate. We know some people will highly disagree but we welcome the conversation.

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!
