Dave leads off by reviewing Michael B. Jordan's directorial debut, CREED III (2:15), which isn't as strong as the other films in the CREED series but has a compelling antagonist played by Jonathan Majors. Next, we all discuss THE YEAR BETWEEN (13:45), writer/director/star Alex Heller's semi-autobiographical dramedy about a college student named Clemence, who moves in with her family after she's diagnosed with bipolar disorder. It lands with one of us, but two of us aren't big fans of it. Then we cover Teodora Mihai's ethically thorny drama LA CIVIL (34:38), which is about a mother (Arciela Ramírez), whose teenage daughter is kidnapped in Northern Mexico and decides to do whatever it takes to get her back. And in this week's Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Steven Spielberg's WWII drama SAVING PRIVATE RYAN in honor of its 25th anniversary this year!
