Oct 21st, 2020 by TheBlockBusters
This episode is a milestone! We have a guest filmmaker talking to us about his movie (Rado interviewed Nathan Grossman, director of ‘I Am Greta’, in Venice). Not to mention some more familiar voices appearing... through an app.
We recount what have we’ve been watching, and the list is impressive. Rado shares his highlights of the BFI London Film Festival and promotes few films playing in cinemas near you - if you only can and want to go and watch a decent movie. Conor opts-in for a home entertainment with some scary stuff, preparing himself for Halloween.
We finally review 'The Boys', TV series that Conor has been banging on for last two months, and 'The Trial of the Chicago 7', latest Aaron Sorkin's drama.
