The Martian / The Assassin

Telluride, Venice, Toronto, New York… they’ve had their fun. Now it’s Chicago’s turn, as the Fall film festival season sweeps into the Windy City for the 51st annual Chicago International Film Fest. Josh and Adam—with the help of Chicago filmmaker Stephen Cone—sort through the fest's 130 feature titles to offer a few of their most anticipated screenings. Plus, a completely likable review of Ridley Scott's completely likable THE MARTIAN.

This episode is brought to you by MUBI and Audible.com.
