She's in theaters in Miss Sloane and on TV screen in Mary Kills People, and now Grace Lynn Kung is in your ears to talk about Steven Spielberg's 1989 blockbuster Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, which turns out to be awfully relevant to the current political moment. Or maybe it's just one of those movies that will always be relevant. Your genial host Norm Wilner is open to either interpretation.

As Dim the Fluorescents has its second screening at Slamdance, co-star Naomi Skwarna stands up for the complex, messy humanity of Kenneth Lonergan's Margaret -- and all of Lonergan's work, really, which is why this episode includes sweves into You Can Count on Me and Manchester By the Sea. Your genial host Norm Wilner is up for it.

You've been good and you deserve a special Friday episode, so here's Dim the Fluorescents director Daniel Warth -- who'll be in Park City for its Slamdance world premiere tomorrow night -- on John Cassavetes' 1984 swan song Love Streams. Your genial host Norm Wilner can't believe this is the show's 100th episode. Where did the time go?

His new documentary The Skyjacker's Tale opens in Toronto on Friday, January 20th, so what better excuse for filmmaker Jamie Kastner to spend an hour talking about Mel Brooks' 1968 bad-taste masterpiece The Producers? That's right! None better! Your genial host Norm Wilner promises not to sing "Prisoners of Love", even though he knows the whole song by heart.

With Michael: Every Day returning to CBC this Sunday, January 15th, actor and writer Matt Watts sits down to talk about his love for -- and fascination with -- Elaine May's excruciating 1972 comedy The Heartbreak Kid. Your genial host Norm Wilner still has the scars from the Farrelly Brothers remake.

As Sleepy Hollow starts up its fourth season this Friday on Fox, co-creator and executive producer Phillip Iscove drops in to burnish the reputation of Curtis Hanson's underrated character comedy Wonder Boys. Your genial host Norm Wilner wishes you all a happy 2017.
