This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss the Lee Daniels’ film The United States vs Billie Holiday and continue our Terrence Malick Movie Series with his 1978 film Days of Heaven!
It’s appropriate that we discussed The United States vs Billie Holiday this week off the heels of the 2021 Golden Globes where its star Andra Day surprised many by winning Best Actress. It was a wonderful moment and a deserved win. We, of course, talk about her performance in the review, but we also talk about the Golden Globes and how wild of a show it was. It’s also a good week any time you get to talk Terrence Malick, and boy did we have fun talking Days of Heaven.
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!

As noted above, for our discussion segment we talked about this year’s Golden Globes and the chaos that unfolded over the course of the show. The HFPA doesn’t care about prognostication and they love to upend expectations. This year was no different as there were several surprises that made for a fun night. Additionally, there were moments of great sincerity that was equally satisfying. So, it was a joyous conversation.
