Shia LaBeouf’s transition from studio star to indie darling (American Honey, Man Down, Charlie Countryman) has been a gradual and creatively gratifying one. We’ve witnessed the Transformers and Holesstar grow from a boy to a man, and with The Peanut Butter Falcon we see both of those stages intertwined in his most likable (and beautifully rendered) performance to date.
It took us 3.5 years, but Anderson Cowan and I finally made it to 100 episodes on CinemAddicts. We’ve been picking up the pace lately (two eps. per month) thanks to our Patreon subscribers, and on this show we cover The Peanut Butter Falcon, Ode to Joy, and Love, Antosha. Details and audio of our podcast is below!!
Opening Friday, Black Mass centers on Whitey Bulger(Johnny Depp), an Irish mobster who collaborated with the FBI (John Connolly, played by Joel Edgerton, was his handler) to bring justice to the Italian mob.
