#709: If Beale Street Could Talk / Shoplifters / Into the Spider-Verse
In the absurd rush to catch up with the best of the year before the end of the year, it's nice when a film forces you into its own patient rhythm. Even better when it looks and sounds as good as IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK, the latest from director Barry Jenkins. Along with that, Adam and Josh have a review of the Palme d'Or-winning SHOPLIFTERS from Japan's Hirokazu Kore-eda, and recommendations for Golden Brick-worthy films from directors Alice Rohrwacher ("Happy as Lazzaro"), Jennifer Fox ("The Tale"), Sandi Tan ("Shirkers") and Jim Cummings ("Thunder Road"). Plus, Massacre Theatre and Adam's thoughts on the new SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE.
