#629: The Discovery / FS Madness Final / Varda #4 - Vagabond

In 2014, first-time writer/director Charlie McDowell made a big impression (on Adam, anyway) with THE ONE I LOVE, a movie about a troubled marriage with surreal, Charlie Kaufman-esque flourishes. McDowell’s follow up - THE DISCOVERY, which stars Rooney Mara, Jason Segel and Robert Redford, also has a provocative sci-fi premise, this one about the consequences of scientists proving the existence of an afterlife. The film debuted to some acclaim this January at Sundance and is now being distributed exclusively on Netflix.

This week on the show, Adam and Josh mostly agree about the movie's failings, but still manage to get into a fight over Jesse Plemons. Plus, Filmspotting Madness Final Four results (The Godfather v 2001! Pulp Fiction v Empire Strikes Back!) and the Agnes Varda Marathon continues with the director's 1985 masterpiece VAGABOND.
