This week on the pod: Have you ever seen a human heart? It looks like a fist, wrapped in blood!! The guys are doing 2004’s Closer, the adaption of the play by Patrick Marber. What a delight. Clive Owen is a gleeful savage and Natalie Portman shakes off years of green-screen franchise drudgery to shine. Adultery has never been so captivating. Oh, and then James and Marco blather about the Oscars for a while at the end.
Marco and Benji are a little all over the place this week. Ostensibly, their focus is on the 2011 film Hanna (07:24), but neither are too fussed with it. Also discussed: The PLLerfectionists, Christopher Nolan’s best movies, Annihilation (52:45), Munich, Padme Amidala’s dumb character, Oscar picks (1:20:47), and more.
