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.

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.

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.

Check back next Friday for our blistering discussion of that other Oscar-nominated flick LADY BIRD. Bon appetite.
