Episode 157: The 2019 Toronto International Film Festival (Part 2)


Erik Childress wraps up this year’s Toronto Film Festival with Sergio Mims by sticking to the good, sometimes the great, stuff. It’s an episode involving Nazis, pimps, popes, moochers, murderers, gamblers and Mr. Rogers. Don’t forget Ladies on fire and those that play with fire. Noah Baumbach, Rian Johnson, Taika Waititi, Pablo Larrain, Trey Edward Shults, the Safdies, and Bong Joon-Ho all factor into an episode with titles you are going to want to put on your radar for this fall and holiday. They also discuss an incident involving Ford v. Ferrari and how “bots” are getting into the movie hype game and can be as vicious as those that want to influence an election.
