One the ninety-third episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew is reeling from recent events and trying to find solace in (what else?) the movies. The first film up for review is Jeff Nichols' second film of the year, LOVING, which is about an interracial couple and the Supreme Court case about their marriage. Our other new film review is for Denis Villeneuve's contemplative sci-fi film, ARRIVAL. We also discuss Dan the Intern, what Armando is allowed to do on the show, and the other co-hosts try not to make fun of Christian for his ragged emotions.
On the ninety-second episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew saves American cinema. The first film up for review is Kelly Reichardt's predictably minimalist, female-centric film, CERTAIN WOMEN. We finish off our latest Auteurography series by discussing Orson Welles' final film, the playful documentary, F for Fake. Finally, we discuss the highly lauded film about the life of a black, queer man, MOONLIGHT. We also discuss theaters of Sacramento, the filmography of Robert Altman, and do not mention Donald Trump's America (because this was recorded before the election).
On the ninety-first episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew wants to sell you magazines, but really you are investing in our future. The first film up for review is Ava DuVernay's Netflix documentary about racist aspects of the American justice system, 13TH. For our Auteurography segment, we discuss Orson Welles' final narrative feature, and amalgamation of Shakespeare plays, Chimes at Midnight. Finally, we discuss Andrea Arnold's epic damaged youth movie, AMERICAN HONEY. We also discuss Orson Welle's weight, cooking pot crowns, and Shia's suspenders.
On the ninetieth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew has committed a crime, but they will never know what it was. The new films of the last couple weeks didn't pique our collective interest, so we decided to double dip on classic film and discuss the Criterion Collection approved Japanese gangster film, TOKYO DRIFTER. Then, we continue our run through Orson Welles' filmography and discuss the criminally under-appreciated THE TRIAL. Finally, we turn to Netflix for our lone new film discussion and talk about the understated, Venezuelan film, FROM AFAR. We also discuss who we are voting for, nude wedding gifts, and start a letter writing campaign to benefit The Trial live on the air.

On the eighty-ninth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODAST, the crew is under heavy surveillance and the government clearly wants to know what films we're watching. The first film up for review is Oliver Stone's hero worship take on a recent American icon, SNOWDEN. For our Auteurography segment, we discuss the Orson Welles' classic, Touch of Evil, and the opening tracking shot that is constantly referenced. Finally, we check out the South Korean horror film and crime drama, THE WAILING. We also discuss Nic Cage's hair, Charlton Heston in brownface, and Kevin James.
On this very special episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST we talk exclusively about the films of CASEY AFFLECK and the man himself. If this sounds strange then this is probably not an episode for you because really this episode is a birthday present for Christian's wife, Katie.
Casey on a dock is a lock.
On this special bonus episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, Jericho slides into the host's chair to talk to Christian and returning guest Robert Gassaway of The Flicksation Podcast about their time at the 43rd annual Telluride Film Festival. It was both Christian and Robert's third trip to the mountains so they discuss how this trip compared to others, which celebrities (or faux-celebrities) they saw, and what the atmosphere in Colorado was like. Of course, you'll also hear some spoiler-free thoughts on the best films that were screened, a savage takedown of Sully, and a rave review for Snoop Dogg's brand of taffy "Dogg Treats."
On the eighty-eighth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew ruins yet another Turkey Day. The first film up for review is a modern western called HELL OR HIGH WATER. Then, we continue our Auteurography segment and talk about Orson Welles' film Mr. Arkadin or Confidential Report (or whatever the hell you want to call it). Finally, we review the Kickstarter and festival darling, KRISHA. We also discuss XBOX, Orson Welles' continually impressive facial hair, and ABBA.
On the eighty-seventh episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew isn't really onto 2016. With most theatrical fare lacking in intrigue we decide to spend most of this episode discussing retro films. Before that, we respond to listener mail asking for our thoughts on The Atlantic piece about method acting and ostensibly about Jared Leto's Joker. Christian has been watching Altman films regularly for months, so now it is time to share the wealth and discuss his absurd, bird comedy, BREWSTER MCCLOUD. Next up, we continue going through Orson Welles' films for our Auteurography segment and discuss his second Shakespeare adaptation, OTHELLO. Finally, we discuss other things we've watched for Recently Watched XXL, including: Suicide Squad, Sausage Party, Neon Bull, and more. Jericho also teaches us about alternate ways to consume online content because of course he does.
On the eighty-sixth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew boldly goes where no podcast has gone before. With Armando back in the saddle, the crew gets back to business, and back to arguing. First film up for review is the directorial debut of actor Brady Corbet, THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER. The Auteurography segment makes it's triumphant return and we discuss Orson Welles' first Shakespeare adaptation, Macbeth. Finally, the crew doesn't seem to be on a peacekeeping mission while reviewing STAR TREK BEYOND because there is plenty of disagreement. We also try and figure out if Armando is talking about Brady Corbet, James Corden, or Josh Hartnett, and who that person has dated.
