FilmWonk Podcast – Episode #71 – “True Story” (dir. Rupert Goold)

Poster for "True Story"

This week on the podcast, Glenn and Daniel learn more about the mystery of Christian Longo and Michael Finkel than they ever wanted to. Enjoy the intense and inexplicable bromance that ensues as we reflect on whether or not strong performances from James Franco and Jonah Hill can redeem such a deeply uncomfortable film (29:20).

May contain NSFW language.

FilmWonk rating: 6 out of 10

Show notes:

  • Music for tonight’s episode is…the movie’s trailer. Not much soundtrack to be had in this film.
  • Bart Layton‘s 2012 documentary, The Impostor, is a movie we’d recommend over this one (in fact, we did!) – and it is indeed on Netflix streaming as of this writing.
  • Apropos of nothing, here’s a link to Rob Cantor‘s performance of “Shia LaBeouf” Live. As we said… it’s delightful, and will change your life.
