Going All the Way

On this week’s Someone Else’s Movie, I’m joined by writer-director Jared Moshe to talk about a film he holds dear to his heart: The Full Monty, the 1997 sleeper about a handful of blokes in Sheffield who decide to try their hands at burlesque.

How did Peter Cattaneo’s international smash steer Jared towards making an emotionally complex sci-fi drama starring the wonderful Judy Greer as a recently widowed mom wrestling with the consequences of using time travel to save her doomed husband from a pointless death? All you have to do is listen! And then go see Aporia, which opens across North America on Friday. It’s quite good.

The rules of physics apply: You can find the show on  Apple PodcastsGoogle PlayStitcher and/or Spotify,  or download it directly from the web, with science.

And then get caught up on the latest editions of Shiny Things, which I’ve finally gotten back on a twice-weekly publishing schedule — for now, at least.

Over the last few days I tackled Criterion’s magnificent restorations of Budd Boetticher and Randolph Scott’s Ranown Westerns, found the hidden message of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and looked at the new 4K editions of East of EdenRio Bravo, Enter the Dragon and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. It’s a lot, right? Subscribe and see!
