It’s Oscar season once again, and Film Twitter impresario Jacob Oller (@JacobOller) joins us to talk about David McKenzie’s hard-hitting crime thriller/neo-Western Hell or High Water! When two brothers (Chris Pine, Ben Foster) take to bank robbery to save their mother’s farm in poverty-stricken west Texas, it’s up to an old Texas marshal (Jeff Bridges) to bring them in. Hear our thoughts on this (and the rest of the Oscar field), along with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!
This week, Darren Aronofsky aficionado (and regular guest) Derek Jarvis returns to help us unpack the psychedelic, time-hopping spiritual masterpiece The Fountain, starring Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz as two lovers navigating the mysteries of the Tree of Life across three different time periods. The results are beautiful, deeply engrossing, and well worth a watch along with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!
