Director Halina Reijn joins the show to discuss her new movie Bodies Bodies Bodies, starring Amanda Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Rachel Sennott, Pete Davidson. We talk about the film’s incredible ending (no spoilers!), working with her cast to create a specific tone and realism, her use of music and score, as well as the ingenious way they let the actors light each other in the film’s dim night scenes. 

Stick around for our review of Bodies Bodies Bodies, a breakdown of the Batgirl saga at DC, and more. Finally, Phil Contrino from the National Association of Theater Owners stops by for a chat about the positive outlook on the future of the theater-going experience.
