This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Hirokazu Koreeda’s latest film The Truth and we continue our Charlie Chaplin Movie Series with his 1936 film Modern Times! Plus a few thoughts on this little film/musical called Hamilton.
This show may go down as one of JD’s favorites of all-time. Given his love for Koreeda and the fact that Modern Times is in his Top 10 of all-time, you can imagine his excitement as we dove into both of these reviews. Additionally, the timing of Hamilton coming out over the weekend couldn’t of been better as that added further excitement to the conversation. And let’s not forget Brendan either, who is also a big fan of Koreeda and Modern Times. So, yeah, we had a lot of fun this week.
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 / Hamilton / Disclosure (50:06)
As mentioned above, and as you already know, Hamilton dropped on Disney+ over the weekend and we had to talk about it. JD had already seen it live in a theater, but he also had to give his thoughts on the film version as well and how it translates to cinema. Spoiler alert, it’s still great. JD also gave his thoughts on Disclosure (available on Netflix), one of the better films of the year and perhaps the best documentary of 2020 so far.
