The Breakdown of 'The Martian', 'Sicario', 'Rope' and 'Song One'

This week Scott and I review some highly anticipated new releases in the Ridley Scott survival adventure, The Martian, and Denis Villeneuve's latest dark thriller, Sicario. From there we discuss a cinematic classic in Alfred Hitchcock's Rope and as well the independent 2015 Anne Hathaway drama, Song One. From there we discuss the current big studio system and debate if it is crushing creative and innovative directors. As always if you enjoy the show then please spread the love.
