In honor of the fast-approaching 92nd Academy Awards, airing Sunday, February 9, Film Club is taking a break from covering this week’s film releases to look back at the Best Picture nominees we didn’t cover last year. Earlier today, our critics A.A. Dowd and Katie Rife revisited Once Upon A Time...In Hollywood. Now, they take a look back at the most nominated film at this year’s ceremony, Joker. Yeah, we didn’t think we’d have to do a special Oscar edition of Film Club for this movie either.
You can watch the video version above and listen to the full podcast episode, including our discussions of Once Upon A Time...In Hollywood and Ford v Ferrari, above.
