CHRISTOPHER SHERWOOD — THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW

London-based actor CHRISTOPHER SHERWOOD brings THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW with TRAILBLAZER IPA for us to imbibe. It doesn't hurt that Christopher was in town to brush up on his Tango technique for his performance in THE PEREGRINE, a play by BIG FEAST regular PHIL HOLT, opening at London's Stockwell Playhouse later this month. Bon appétit!

1900 — BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI

SIERRA NEVADA'S BOUBLE BULLET DOUBLE IPA gave us the craft beer inspiration needed to dive into Cole's favorite film of all time, Bernardo Bertolucci's epic set in Parma, Italy. Donald Sutherland, Gerard Depardieu, Burt Lancaster, Robert De Niro, and Dominique Sanda contribute to this undeniable masterpiece.

NATURAL BORN KILLERS — OLIVER STONE

Mike baits Cole with a film Cole has never been able to get through until now. What's drinking you might ask. Cole picked HOP STOOPID from Lagunitas Brewing Company. Is this Oliver Stone's worst film? Cole thinks so.

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.
