Ciphers and Darkness

The material may be grim, but this week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie is a goddamn delight.

That’s because I’m joined by Jim Cummings — the writer, director and star of Thunder Road, The Wolf of Snow Hollow and the brand-new comic thriller The Beta Test — to talk about a movie he believes is perfect in every way: David Fincher’s Zodiac. And you know what? He might have a point.

Subscribe on Apple PodcastsGoogle Play and Stitcher to hear him make his case, or download the episode directly from the web. And yes, I was not the biggest fan of Fincher’s film when I first saw it back in 2007, but I’ve come around. It knows exactly what it’s doing.

And once you’re done with that, you should check out last Friday’s NOW What, where Enzo walks me through next year’s municipal election and what it all means for Toronto’s future. And then there’s the What to Watch page, with capsule reviews of Eternals, Spencer, The Beta Test and the new season of Big Mouth; you can also read my review of Red Notice, the algorithmically designed all-star Netflix entertainment that starts streaming Friday.

This is how much I care about you, you see.
