133. Secrecy

March 21st, 2016

Inspired by the release of 10 Cloverfield Lane, which no one knew about until mere weeks before it was due to come out, this week's episode is all about secrecy, and the problem of maintaining a sense of surprise when it comes to filmmaking. Could someone make a film completely in secret and release it to the world the same way that Kendrick Lamar released an album unannounced? What's the best way to sell a film without ruining it? Is Dave Stewart from Eurythmics a serial killer? All of these questions get addressed in one form or another. There's also a lot of talk about Indiana Jones 5, some talk about Brett Gelman's iBrain routine, and a little talk about Oscar Isaac's dick. Typical show, basically.
