Do you smell what Derek Cianfrance is cooking? Well, Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan sure can and they’re here to talk about his new recipe for making you cry. The director of Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines returns with The Light Between Oceans, starring Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz. We discuss its place in the Oscar race and the pantheon of Cianfrance (which is admittedly fairly small at the moment).
On top of that, Dylan saw Don’t Breathe, the new thriller from Fede Alvarez who previously directed the Evil Dead remake. He also took the time out to watch The Rundown, starring The Rock, and provides a passionate explanation as to why the film might very well be up Chris’s alley. Both Chris and Dylan saw Hell or High Water and talk about what makes it stand above most films that came out this summer. Then Chris also went to Fan Expo Canada this year and saw two horror shorts: Invaders and Static.
There’s no lack of content this week as we also discuss our top five films that came out this summer, as well as the typical news stories (RIP Gene Wilder) and the blu-ray releases of the week. Next week, tune in to hear us discuss Clint Eastwood’s latest film, Sully.
