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.

Ok seriously though, that Nolan impression is beyond perfect.
I don’t understand the joke
Christopher Nolan! What an honor to speak with you. My first question is: Burger King or McDonald’s?
Next featured review should be WAP.
as much as I love Jon and Will, I think the podcasting world has had enough white dudes talking about WAP.
Our thoughts exactly.
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!
