Backseat Driver

This week on Someone Else’s Movie, I’m joined by The Channel writer-director William Kaufman for a ride-along with Michael Mann’s prickly, claustrophobic Collateral, the 2004 thriller that throws Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx together for one grim night driving in Los Angeles.

Collateral is one of my favorite Mann films, all twists and tension. If you’ve never seen the movie, I won’t spoil it for you — but the episode absolutely will, so go catch up before you listen!

Now, when you’re ready you can find the show on  Apple PodcastsGoogle PlayStitcher and/or Spotify,  or download the episode directly from the web like a good hostage. Enjoy!

And then you can check out the latest edition of Shiny Things, where I review Beau Is Afraid and find some curious resonance between Ari Aster’s balls-out tour de force and Peter Weir’s 1998 masterwork The Truman Show, which just got a beautiful 4K restoration from Paramount.
