The Third Act Podcast – Episode 87

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.

THE THIRD ACT PODCAST is what happens when three film nerds get together in the wee hours of the night inside a cold garage and launch into movie-related discussions and reviews. A true "lo-fi" podcast with a no-string budget, THE THIRD ACT PODCAST is dedicated to highlighting the third act of movies, which could either make or break the cinematic experience. So cozy up with your favorite glass of cheap wine and enjoy Christian, Armando, and Jericho's long-winded forays into all things film!
