18: Nomads and Forgeries

Nomadland author and “newbie cinephile” Jessica Bruder joins host Gemma Gracewood for a chat about her favorite films, working night-shifts at Starbucks with Christina Ricci’s brother, Chloé Zhao’s unique directing magic, and why Shaun the Sheep Movie is way too stressful. The Last Vermeer star Guy Pearce drops by to talk about the intoxicating joys of interrogation scenes, the greatest Australian film ever made, and Letterboxd reviews of Memento. And, our Hollywood correspondent Dominic Corry on the Golden Globes, canapés, Coming 2 America, and the gender inclusivity of Interstellar fandom on Letterboxd. Plus, our NEON-Letterboxd 2021 Awards Bundle.
