It is insightful European human drama week on Film Chat. First off Danny dissects donor transplant drama french Heal the Living with surgical precision. Then Sam err..lectures us about the merits about romanian film Graduation..academically? Whatever, they're both great.

PLUS we discuss the trailer for anticipated sequel/Film Chat whipping boy Kingsman, wonder if Will Smith is really the man to judge the quality of films given the last 10 films he's made AND debut some exclusive never heard before audio of Tom Hardy's recent act of everyday heroism.

This week we review an old and boring film, Oscar-winning classic One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. Jack Nicholson acts wacky in an asylum, yada yada yada. No explosions. We also review a new and exciting film, The Fast & The Furious 8, which by contrast is brilliant. Many explosions.

Danny and Sam also do some fantasy casting for an upcoming reboot of Labyrinth, talk about how sexy and normal it is to cry buckets in films, and venture briefly into the twisted mind of M Night Shyamalan. Also Danny DeVito canvasses for Jeremy Corbyn.

On this episode we review Park Chan Wook's The Handmaiden which features our two favourite movie tropes, girl on girl action and amateur dentistry. Then we tackle acclaimed coming of age/body horror, Raw which was so good it caused Danny's brain to shut down briefly.

We also discuss the news that Jude Law has been cast as young Dumbledore, give all the info on the latest Ron Howard project and question which way Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen leans (politically speaking).

Film Chat is serving up another three-course reviewing banquet this week: the James Baldwin documentary I Am Not Your Negro (which is ace), Pablo Larraín's unconventional biopic Neruda (also ace), and cyberpunk blockbuster Ghost in the Shell (poopfest).

Plus! We adopt a thrillingly stilted manner to talk about Joss Whedon making a Batgirl film; we apply to join the Transformers writers' room; and we hear Danny roar.

On this super bumper edition of Film Chat we review four thematically identical films. First up Danny takes aim at Ben Wheatley's Free Fire. He's made a film set in a house, a film set in a field and a film set in block of flats but can the British auteur make a film set in a warehouse? Yes.

THEN Sam slashes his way through the colonial adventure drama, The Lost City of Z for which Robert Pattinson grew a beard that is even bigger than his fan base.

THEN Danny tackles the lovingly crafted and lovecraftian The Void, a low budget siege horror movie where most of the budget went on tentacles.

AND THEN Danny AND Sam join forces to examine the most talked about film of the week, or indeed any week, Revolution: New Art for a New World - a documentary about Russian revolutionary art. You're welcome.

Apologies for the lax Film Chat service lately! Some technical weasels and gremlins have been clogging up our efforts to transfer to premier podcasting platform Acast, and it's caused a couple of delays. Don't worry though, a team of expensive nerds is working on the problem and we've been assured it will all be sorted soon.

Until then, here is the latest chat! Consisting of reviews of a trio of independent films -- lyrical coming-of-age documentary All This Panic, arthouse torture porn The Eyes of My Mother, and mockumentary thriller Operation Avalanche. Something for everyone, except explosion fans. Not many explosions.

We also discuss whether Robert Downey Jr. will make a good Dr. Dolittle, we talk about fairy tales' backwards attitudes to interracial marriage, and we spend a surprisingly long time discussing racial purity, in the sort of tangent you have to save until episode 111 if you want to keep any listeners whatsoever.

This week Danny reviews not one but two documentaries; Gleason, all about former football star Steve Gleason's ongoing battle with ALS and Uncertain, all about an American town in the middle of nowhere. If you like to cry for 90 minutes and then stare at beautiful shots of nature for another 90 minutes then this is the double bill for you!

We also, being the woke, white, middle class guys that we are, check out Jordan Peele's inventive horror film Get Out. It's no Eat Pray Love but it's still very good.

We also wonder how they could possibly reboot The Matrix seeing as it has already sorta come true and report on the last uncompleted film of genius film director/frozen peas salesman Orson Welles.

There's been a lot of critical love for Logan, a final gritty outing for Hugh Jackman as everyone's favourite growly mutant. Film Chat, however, spends 15 minutes slating it because it features no references to the 1990s X-Men animated cartoon series. Where is Morph??

Danny also reviews Paul Verhoeven's Elle, which he describes repeatedly as "an electric piece of cinema" in an obvious and shameless attempt to get quoted on the poster. They've all been printed already, Danny!

Plus, we try to talk over the ear-splitting gushing of the entire film industry at news of a potential Spielberg film starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep; we examine the IMDb's new feminist classification; and we unveil Hugh Jackman's extremely downbeat theme song for Logan.
