Dead Again (1991) review / dir. Kenneth Branagh
The gang fakes an American accent this week as they review Kenneth Branagh's directorial sophomore mystery thriller, Dead Again (1991). Hired to find the true identity of a woman with a lost memory, Mike Church uses his P.I. skills and a little help from some quirky friends and business associates to crack the case. But along the way, he finds love in the mysterious focus of his investigation. Dead Again was a fan pick from Linda McCalister, who saw it in theater and has fond memories of its release. Watch on Amazon Prime, then listen to Joseph, Pete, and Tyler break down this forgotten 90's noir. http://www.MCFCpodcast.com for all of our social media-Email us at MCFCpodcast@gmail.com    -Leave us a voicemail (209) 730-6010-Join the Patreon: www.patreon.com/MiddleClassFilmClass-Get some merch:https://middle-class-film-class.creator-spring.com/ Join the Patreon:www.patreon.con/middleclassfilmclassPatrons:JavierListener Stephen: The Maple Syrup DonJoel ShinnemanLinda McCalister Heather Sachs  https://twitter.com/DorkOfAllDorksRyanJason Kleeberg https://www.forcefivepodcast.com/Listener BrendanHosts:Joseph NavarroPete Abeytaand Tyler Noe

Coherence (2013) review / dir. James Ward Byrkit
The gang argues about who put ketamine in the spaghetti this week, as they review the under-seen and under-appreciated indy sci-fi chamber piece, Coherence (2013). 8 friends at a dinner party find themselves in the center or outer limit of a multiverse time warp drama. With the low budget feel of Primer, and the confined dinner party feel of The Invitation, Coherence may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is a feat for the ultra low price point. Watch right now for free on Amazon Prime, Peacock, Tubi, Kanopy, and PlutoTV then tune in and hear the gang's thoughts. http://www.MCFCpodcast.com-Email us at MCFCpodcast@gmail.com    -Leave us a voicemail (209) 730-6010-Join the Patreon: www.patreon.com/MiddleClassFilmClass-Get some merch:https://middle-class-film-class.creator-spring.com/Join the Patreon:www.patreon.con/middleclassfilmclassSponsor - N/AJoseph NavarroPete Abeytaand Tyler Noe

Woman Walks Ahead (2017) review / dir. Susanna White
This week's episode was streamed live in Twitch through Sacramento's own STAB comedy theater. Watch the VOD here--> https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1663436276The gang goes on a road trip to paint a portrait this week, as they review A24's 4th most expensive movie to make, Woman Walks Ahead (2017) written by Steven Knight, directed by Susanna White. Based off a real portrait painter that actually painted Sitting Bull's portrait in the late 1800's, and the book that was written about her, Woman Walks ahead came and went with not a moment's notice, and absolutely tanked at the box office. But with a couple of heavy-hitters like Jessica Chastain and Sam Rockwell at the lead, it was sure to bring something to to the table. Streaming right now on HBO Max, watch along, then hear us break it down. http://www.MCFCpodcast.com-Email us at MCFCpodcast@gmail.com    -Leave us a voicemail (209) 730-6010-Get some merch:https://middle-class-film-class.creator-spring.com/Sponsor - N/AJoseph NavarroPete Abeytaand Tyler Noe
