The Third Act Podcast – Episode 81

On the eighty-first episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew is looking for love but have wildlife backup plans if that search doesn't end well. The first film up for review is a black and white period piece about an Amazonian shaman, EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT. For our Auteurography segment we discuss Orson Welles' nazi hunt film, THE STRANGER. Finally, we call in the Greek Squad to discuss Yorgos Lanthimos' bizarre romantic comedy, THE LOBSTER. We also discuss whether or not we're going to see Warcraft, what film gives off an Inspector Gadget vibe, and whether or not Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows can be positively compared to a Robert Altman film.

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!
