Four Favorites: Gemma Gracewood & Slim on Strictly Ballroom, Robocop and human nipples

A podcast hosted in fear is a podcast half-hosted—so now we have two hosts! Slim and Gemma introduce a new format, in which we interrogate a guest about their four Letterboxd favorites. First in the hot seat: the hosts themselves. Slim makes Gemma watch Vanilla Sky, while Gemma puts Slim through his bago-pago with Strictly Ballroom. Plus: Daniel Day-Lewis’s most surprising role, Paul Verhoeven’s normalization of the nipple, and Mark Ruffalo can be anything you want. Finally, the pressing question: are you Team Tom or Team Nicole?
