Oliver Stone is finally mad about something again, but is his Edward Snowden biopic Snowden a return to his former greatness or is this illegal data collection thriller a hack job? This week on The B-Movies Podcast, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold come to blows over Snowden and also catch up on a whole bunch of new releases, including Sully, Blair Witch, Bridget Jones’s Baby, Other People, Ithaca and Operation Avalanche.
Also on this week’s episode, Bibbs and Witney walk you through more than a dozen films from this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, with reviews of The Autopsy of Jane Doe, The Bad Batch, City of Tiny Lights, Colossal, Elle, The Handmaiden, Headshot, La La Land, Loving, A Monster Calls, Moonlight, Nocturnal Animals and Personal Shopper.
Plus, we keep getting your letters, so we’ll keep reading them on the air! Be sure to drop us a line at email@example.com with your comments, opinions, suggestions, the films that inspire you, your picks for the best films of the decade (so far) and your questions about Bibbs and Witney.
