Over the course of their 100+ episodes, the simmering topic of Martin Scorsese and his controversial thoughts on the state of cinema have come up more than once. The hosts of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, are comprised of a self-proclaimed “Marvel Shill” and another film critic who gives no one a free pass and tempers expectations every chance he gets. While Martin Scorsese’s work, legacy, and impact on the artistic medium are openly respected by our hosts, he has become a filmmaker that pushes their buttons, and sometimes not the right ones.

For their 131st episode, two reunited critics, two non-poisonous dads, and two stalwart teachers, Will Johnson and Don Shanahan, are back together after few episodes away with guest hosts. They return with a vengeance to breakdown and even takedown the earmarked savior of cinema known as Killers of the Flower Moon from director Martin Scorsese. The guys really go deep into the film and the grander picture of cinema criticism. This is a double-length doozy of an episode! Come for the shared challenge and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
