We talk with Andreas Johnsen, the Danish director of the documentary Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case about chronicling the post prison life of one of the world's most revered and influential artists, being allowed into Ai Weiwei’s inner circle, the various ways the artist tested his resolve as a filmmaker, and what he learned about Weiwei and his current situation.
We talk to Laurent Cantet, director of the Joyce Carol Oates adaptation Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang about wanting to tackle the material, balancing the personal and the political, and why the film’s core group dynamic took so long to come together.

On this episode we review Neighbors starring Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron. We also talk with Fearless Fred Kennedy about his latest comic The Fourth Planet available free online at Big Sexy Comics.
