It’s the last show of the year, and Anderson Cowan and I cover Paterson, 20th Century Women, and the documentary By Sidney Lumet. Quick recap of the year-end show, as well as a detailed breakdown of the, as Anderson likes to say, proohgrum (aka program), is found after the jump.
Although Anderson and I reviewed Jason Bourne for the first segment of this week’s CinemAddicts, the huge takeaway that you’ll hopefully get from Episode 30 is that Gleason is an awesome, life-affirming, and raw documentary that we both deeply love.
Director Clay Tweel’s documentary Gleason, which centers on former NFL player Steve Gleason’s battles with ALS and journey as a father and husband, is hands down one of this year’s best films. The film will be discussed on EP. 30 of CinemAddicts and “180 Seconds or Less,” but since this is our “movie love” segment, we asked Tweel to name a film that he digs.
