This week, I welcome back our contributor Ben Sears to the podcast to review Robert Eggers’ incredible film, The Lighthouse. We also discuss some news regarding David Benioff and DB Weiss, the Game of Thrones prequel announcement, and more. For Potpourri, Ben shares his thoughts on AppleTV+ original series See, Dickinson, For All Mankind, The Morning Show, and the service itself. Then I share my thoughts on the Special Presentation screenings I attended at HIFF2019.
