Best Worst Podcast: 2016 NZIFF wrap-up (Pt II)

Part two of our NZIFF 2016 wrap-up podcast sees Doug Dillaman, Jacob Powell and David Larsen arguing the merits of Kirsten Johnson’s memoir-cum-interrogation-of-documentary-filmmaking-from-the-off-cuts as well as agreeing — No, disagreeing! No, agreeing! — on the genius of Asghar Farhadi’s work, including his Cannes lauded latest The Salesman. Later, Jacob gets a French lesson and David and Doug remark upon the cat-based scare skills of Paul Verhoeven as seen in Elle. Dig in!
