This fortnight, Nick and Alastair take their annual stab at catching some films which will go on to win Oscar glory with Paul Thomas Anderson’s Licorice Pizza and Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth. Their success has been variable in the past, will these films finally win out?
But first, Alastair’s back on the Netflix subtitled drama with The Silent Sea, while Nick’s finally gone back and watched all of HBO scorched-Earth political satire Veep.
And then they cruise back to the 70s with the smooth romance and weird Hollywood satire of Licorice Pizza (11:02).
Last of all, going forward in time to their GCSE years, Nick and Alastair take a look at The Tragedy of Macbeth (23:03).
