We are sad to say goodbye to Jena as a regular co-host and movie non-expert but that means we will have rotating cast of non-experts instead! This episode, Tonya Wershow from our sister podcast, A Reel Education: Noir, joins us for Federico Fellini’s 8 1/2. The movie is surreal and collapses in on itself like a black hole and it is all pretty brilliant. At least we thought so. We also thought the cinematography was lush and amazing. Definitely worth a viewing although it will probably take more than one to see everything that is going on.
Our next movie will be The Lion in Winter!
