Despite its top billing, Macon Blair’s Melanie Lynskey/Elijah Wood staring Netflix exclusive isn’t the big review this episode, that honor is split between my solo outings with Playstation VR’s Farpoint + Aim Controller (14:57) and Master of None season two (24:15). Meanwhile, Steve missed another chance at catching GotG Vol. 2 in 3D and settled on anime darling, Your Name (31:43) and I close with praise for film podcast 80s All Over (38:27).
Despite how long cinema has been around, deaf/mute societies are one of the few worlds we rarely gain access to.

Please experience this neo-silent film for yourself (its on Netflix) before joining our discussion, because this is a unique beast that you shouldn’t have ruined #IdBuyThatForADollar
