We've gotten ourselves into yet another...fermented cucumber. This week we're reviewing An American Pickle, the new Seth Rogen comedy now streaming on HBO Max. We also discuss David Ayer's latest directorial/screenwriting effort The Tax Collector, which stars Bobby Soto and Shia LaBeouf. And last is Ciro Guerra's Waiting for the Barbarians, a slow burn frontier drama starring Mark Rylance, Robert Pattinson, and Johnny Depp. Of course, we open up the episode with a brief, but satisfying check-in with Christopher Nolan, himself.

Music in this episode: “sincerely, yours” by Nohidea
