Cinemaholics Podcast #180 – An American Pickle, The Tax Collector, Waiting for the Barbarians

We’ve gotten ourselves into yet another…fermented cucumber. This week we’re reviewing An American Pickle, the new Seth Rogen comedy now streaming on HBO Max. We also discuss David Ayer’s latest directorial/screenwriting effort The Tax Collector, which stars Bobby Soto and Shia LaBeouf. And last is Ciro Guerra’s Waiting for the Barbarians, a slow burn frontier drama starring Mark Rylance, Robert Pattinson, and Johnny Depp. Of course, we open up the episode with a brief, but satisfying check-in with Christopher Nolan, himself.

Music in this episode: “sincerely, yours” by Nohidea

    1. Christopher Nolan! What an honor to speak with you. My first question is: Burger King or McDonald’s?

    1. as much as I love Jon and Will, I think the podcasting world has had enough white dudes talking about WAP.

  1. Such a wasted premise. I was really digging An American Pickle up until it changed into a weird business competition plot. The fascinating fish out of water/generational tale was right there!
