/Filmcast Ep. 71 - Trick 'R Treat (GUEST: Rian Johnson, Director Of Brick And The Brothers Bloom)


In this week's /Filmcast, Dave Chen, Devindra Hardawar and Adam Quigley discuss the merits (or lack thereof) of 3D conversion, compare A Serious Man to Barton Fink, and confirm or deny whether or not Couples Retreat is, in fact, a complete trainwreck. Special guest writer/director Rian Johnson joins us for this episode. Rian's latest film, The Brothers Bloom, is currently available for rental in iTunes, Blockbuster, Netflix, and plenty of other places right now.
