#113 - Ranking Iñárritu's Filmography
We are merging our discussion on “Birdman” into a larger, more comprehensive look at the films of Alejandro González Iñárritu: “Amores Perros”, “21 Grams”, “Babel”, “Biutiful”, “Birdman”, and “The Revenant”. Join Ian and Adam as they talk about Iñárritu’s past, his frequent collaborators, and major themes he likes to explore. They also discuss whether or not Iñárritu’s work falls into the minds of regular movie-goers. And then get ready because the guys of 1001 by 1 tackle their first definitive director ranking of the year – where will your favorite film land on their list?
