Special guest Mike Overhulse joins us this week to discuss Killers of the Flower Moon, the latest feature film directed and co-written by Martin Scorsese. And yes, we’re talking about the importance of not being Ernest. Killers of the Flower Moon was also co-written by Eric Roth and is based on the eponymous 2017 book by David Grann. Additionally, the ensemble cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Lily Gladstone, Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, John Lithgow, Brendan Fraser, and many more. The film opened in theaters on October 20 through Paramount Pictures and Apple Original Films, will eventually go to streaming on Apple TV+, and has a 206-minute runtime.
Our intro music this week is “Humble Beginnings (feat. Look)” by l’eupe.
