The Golden Briefcase 158 - Magician's Craft

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by special guests Jordan Vogt-Roberts, director of Sundance hit The Kings of Summer, and the Alamo Drafthouse's DFW Creative Director James Wallace to go through their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for pot comedy We're the Millers and Elijah Wood's horror remake Maniac and more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on Magic and Magicians in Cinema, in honor of Now You See Me in theaters. The guys cite examples of this craft in film and how it correlates to the mysticism of movie-magic.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records.

Glad you mentioned 3-Iron, it's one of my all time favorite films! So great. Kim Ki-duk is one of my favorite living directors.
