Podcast: You Were Never Really Here / Top 3 Movies About PTSD – Episode 270

This week’s episode is brought to you by Live Stream For the Cure. Donate today toward this great cause and tune in May 18 – May 20.

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Hermano DaSilva from the First Time Watchers podcast joins us to discuss Joaquin Phoenix is Lynn Ramsay’s new film, You Were Never Really Here. We also discuss our top 3 films about PTSD and we offer a few thoughts on the late-great Milos Forman, who unfortunately passed away recently.

There are many great actors working today, but Phoenix is among the very top if you ask us. His work in You Were Never Really Here further cements home just how great he is at his craft. So, with that in mind, we discuss his best performances for our poll this week too. We will also be continuing our Akira Kurosawa Movie Series for our Ep. 270 Bonus Content as we discuss both Yojimbo and Sanjuro. Lastly, a huge thank you to Hermano for joining us and showing grace for somehow not getting on the show until this week. He was great and we can’t wait to have him back.

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!

– Thoughts on Milos Forman and Verne Troyer (47:31)

Unfortunately, the film community lost two beloved players this last week with the death of Oscar-winning director Milos Forman and also Verne Troyer, the man who portrayed the iconic Mini-Me in the Austin Powers films. We thought we would honor these two by spending a few minutes talking about what made them so great.

Top 3 Movies About PTSD (50:02)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is, obviously, a delicate and volatile problem for many people, so it needs to be handled well in film for it to make a real impact. There are some films that miss the mark, but others that have extraordinarily hit the bullseye – and those are the films that we focused on for our lists. On that note, what moments or scenes would make your list? That said, what would be your Top 3?
