It’s been a minute on the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, since our last “deep cut” episode on the high points and underappreciated films of a performer’s career. Woody Harrelson was the previous one back around the opening of Venom: Let There Be Carnage. For Women’s History Month, we selected one of the best and most positive female icons of our generation.

For our 54th episode, 25YL film critics, cerebrally-seductive dads, and mentally-capable school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan embark on another “Deep Cut” discussion on the legacy of another celebrated performer. Suggested by Will, the hosts shared their love/hate takes and viewing recommendations for Sigourney Weaver, a pillar of strong female characterization. They work around the easy and obvious to peer further down the career resume.
