#593: Swiss Army Man / Kiarostami Tribute / Top 5 'Body' Movies


If you were paying any attention to the Sundance Film Festival back in January, it’s likely that you caught wind of a film that was being referred to as the ‘Daniel Radcliffe Farting Corpse Movie.’ There were reports of walk outs. Well that movie has an actual title - SWISS ARMY MAN - and it actually does star Daniel Radcliffe as a flatulent corpse. It also stars Paul Dano as a desperate castaway. This week, Adam and guest host Melissa Tamminga from Seattle Screen Scene have a review, and share their Top 5 ‘Body’ Movies. Plus, a conversation with Movie Mezzanine's Tina Hassannia about the legacy of the late Abbas Kiarostami.
