In Never HereMireille Enos stars as Miranda Fall, an installation artist who follows, photographs and documents total strangers for her respective pieces. Late one night after a show, her married lover Paul (Sam Shepard in his final role) witnesses a crime outside Miranda’s apartment. She then agrees to cover Paul’s witnessing of the crime as Miranda takes his place. After she partakes in a lineup - where she obviously cannot pick the offender - Miranda follows one of the curious men from the lineup and a new art project begins. As she comes to believe someone is stalking her, she ascertains that it could just be the man she believes to have committed the original crime, or is her own voyeurism finally getting the best of her?

Never Here is a film that wears it's shade of Hitchcock meshed with the more creative aspects of artistic expression proudly on its sleeve. It is very much a thriller, while at the same time serving as a thinking piece on voyeurism and many of our own beliefs that no one's privacy remains secret in this day and age.

Aaron sits down with the writer and director of Never Here, Camille Thoman. Camille has a unique canvas to showcase her film, as the basic construct is that of a thriller, yet there is much more at play here as it bleeds into feelings of paranoia and perhaps even shades of our own voyeuristic guilt. Camille elaborates on this blending of genres, why Mireille was the perfect choice for Miranda, and working with Sam on his final film.

Never Here releases in theaters October 20th, 2017.  Enjoy this exclusive interview with writer and director, Camille Thoman.

Crying while watching a movie can be a horrendously embarrassing experience, or it can be a cathartic release. It’s the most vulnerable moment we have as viewers, to let our guard down and expose what hits us right in the heart.

On this week’s podcast, the guys turn the show over to Amanda, Angela, Amy and Courtney for a week as they dive into what brings us to tears in the theater. Happy tears, sad tears, all the tears will be debated as our quartet lead you down the greatest tearjerker moments in film. It’s our podcast, and we can cry if we want to.

Also on this week’s podcast: which film genres do we wish we were into, movies or TV shows you no longer admire, does violence in TV or film reflect society, are we done with Sherlock Holmes, upcoming releases including Blade Runner 2049, The Mountain Between Us, Movie Innuendo, recommendations, and much more.

What makes a great TV villain? Many believe it is the depths of evil one can go, while others believe it is how shrewdly a character can maneuver within the fabric of society, bending a weaker man’s will to their own.

On this week’s show, we debate who is the greatest villain on television over the last ten years, and many of our selections might just surprise you. Could Joffrey rule them all? Is Boyd Crowder just sly enough to eek out a victory? Ben Linus seems like a sure winner. But can you ever truly count out Rowan Pope? Find out on this week’s podcast, as we arrive at one ultimate winner for the Modern TV Villain Battle Royale!

Also on this week’s podcast: Tomb Raider finally showcases a trailer, Linda Hamilton returns to Terminator, release dates for John Wick and IT sequels, review of Friend Request, upcoming releases including American Made, Flatliners, and Till Death Do Us Part, recommendations, and much more.

After our normal show, we head back to Matthew Vaughn’s hyper-stylized take on spy flicks with Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Does the sequel cash in on the potential from the first film? Was Julianne Moore the right choice for Poppy? Is Eggsy evolving or is Harry weighing him down? We have different opinions on this one, so don’t miss the discussion.
