PORTRAIT OF JASON — SHIRLEY CLARKE

Cole and Mike dig Shirley Clarke's magnificent cinéma vérité work which showcases a gay black Mark Twain of African American experience up to this film's 1967 filming. Left Hand Brewing Milk Stout Nitro gave us the craft beer delight we desired for our movie chat. Bon appetite!

BLACK PANTHER — RYAN COOGLER

Treehouse Brewing's American Brown Ale BEAR is the beer of choice for Mike and Cole to hash out the first (and hopefully only) superhero movie to make it into the Feast. We also have our first food-fight as a result. Do superhero hero movies indoctrinate children into violent behavior? Cole thinks so. Could this be the movie that breaks LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST)? Superhero movies do indeed teach confrontation after all. Get out the electric knife for this one Bouffers, and don't worry about the mess.

IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES — Nagisa Oshima

Smuttynose Imperial Stout gives Cole and Mike the liquid foundation needed to discuss one of the most legendary and notorious films of Japanese Cinema. Non-simulated sex. You bet. You'll need a full set of utensils for this feast, so get out your forks, spoons, and the sharpest knives you can find — you'll know why. Bon appetite Bouffers.

THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD — Dan O'Bannon w/ guest Co-Host Grady Hendrix

Screenwriter Grady Hendrix joins the Feast this week to bring us the delightful THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. Cole broke out a bottle of MUDPUPPY PORTER from his personal stash for the occasion. Whether or not you're familiar with Dan O'Bannon's (screenwriter on "ALIEN"), you're in for a fun time. Bon appetite.

LADY BIRD — GRETA GERWIG

Mike holds Cole's feet to the fire as Cole lays out character flaw after character flaw for Saoirse Ronan's persona in what is destined to be one of the most overrated films of all time. MAGIC HAT BREWING'S #9 provided a nice buzz to the discussion. You can read the print essay (THE MILLENNIAL CONFORMIST — OR HOW TO LEARN TO LOVE STUPIDITY WITHOUT REALLY TRYING), watch the video essay, and listen to the podcast. Since Cole is the only film critic to spell out "Lady Bird's" flaws, at least he doesn't hold back.

VIVRE SA VIE — JEAN LUC GODARD

Jean-Luc Godard's fourth film features Godard's wife-at-the-time Anna Karina as an actress-turned-prostitute in this ground breaking example of the French New Wave. Stone Delicious IPA seemed like the perfect beer to go along with this equally attractive film.
