Booksmart

This week we’re joined by guest host Ellington Wells, a writer and comedian whose credits include The New Negroes and Adult Swim’s Lazor Wulf. The panel discuss the teen comedy Booksmart, and what distinguishes this film from others in the “one crazy night” genre.

Kayla in Seattle called the Who Shot Line after seeing Captain Marvel, a movie that helped her shake off the idea of what women are supposed to be. She wondered if the panelists could point to any movies that helped them contextualize their place in the world.

In news, Rotten Tomatoes fights back against review-bombing trolls, director Xavier Dolan takes issue with describing his latest film
Matthias & Maxime as a ‘gay love story’, and former SNL star Chris Kattan’s new memoir
Baby, Don’t Hurt Me alleges Lorne Michaels pressured him to have sex with ‘Clueless’ director Amy Heckerling.

Being John Malkovich

This week we've got the amazing creator of Syfy's 'The Magicians' - Sera Gamble. She's on to talk about the film that introduced the world to the mind of Charlie Kaufman - Being John Malkovich. Sera elaborates on her deep personal connection to the film. And admits it may have something to do with John Malkovich being her very first celebrity crush. She also takes April through the process of writing, and how often times the best way to write is by not knowing where you're going. They celebrate the performances of Cameron Diaz, John Cusack, and Catherine Keener - and also Cameron Diaz's phenomenal wig! They dissect the writing of Charlie Kaufman and how he came to create one of the most unique screenplays of all time. Sera connects the lessons she's learned from this film to her own work, and how she takes great pleasure in making the audience squirm.

The Magicians is on Syfy now.
