Podcast: First Reformed / Let the Sunshine In / The Tale – Extra Film

This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, we take this opportunity to go more literal with the term “extra” in Extra Film. We do a massive deep dive in Paul Schrader’s latest faith-based drama First Reformed, starring Ethan Hawke and Amanda Seyfried, and attempt to analyze all of what that film may mean thematically, on top of just praising it highly.

Paul Schrader himself has been somewhat hit-or-miss as a filmmaker, but with screenplays such as Taxi Driver and Raging Bull under his belt, his latest just seemed to warrant a heavy cross-examination, especially given it’s current critical praise. We also round out the show by sharing some very quick thoughts on Claire Denis’ latest Let the Sunshine In, starring Juliette Binoche, as well as the HBO drama The Tale, starring Laura Dern. However, due to the time dedicated to Paul Schrader’s latest, we couldn’t dedicate full reviews to these other two films; hopefully you understand.

We hope you have fun with this week’s Extra Film segment, and as always let us know what you think in the comment section below. Thanks for listening!
