Top 3: Films in Isolation

Ted and Ricky are back for a pared-down Establishing Shot. While no guests are joining the hosts and there are no films playing in the Browning Cinema to discuss, the episode is still filled with a whole bunch of Top 3 love. In reflection of the past months, Ted and Ricky discuss the Top 3 shows they enjoyed from the literally hundreds they’ve watched during isolation.

Ricky runs through the video he watched most (Pure Difference), his favorite from the bushels of French-language noir films he’s watched (Nightcap), and his favorite text-with-friends-while-watching screening (Ma). Ted chats about the outcomes of Canadian controversial therapy techniques (The Brood), the middle child in Wilt Stillman’s acidic trilogy (Barcelona), and an overlooked film with the Barron 1-2 of Neil Simon and Charles Grodin (The Lonely Guy).

As always, stay safe out there, and we look forward to continuing our film discussions on Establishing Shot and restarting them, hopefully soon, in person.
