The Talkies Podcast: Ep. 5 – Zero Dark Thirty
This week The Talkies welcome special guest Eric Shellan as he sits in with the group to discuss Zero Dark Thirty. But first he must answer some hard-hitting questions that may be familiar to listeners. The weekly roundup brings up questions about comedy duo Tim and Eric’s sex life and Jacob dazzles the group with a eerily spot-on impression of Marion Cotillard’s performance in Rust and Bone.
Long then examines what critics of today would have to say about Yankee Doodle Dandy as he works through the AFI Top 100. Lastly, Zero Dark Thirty brings the group together in a conversation about political thrillers and Kathryn Bigelow’s career. Will The Talkies be first in line for her next movie? Take a listen to find out!
