The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Sideways”

For this month’s first throwback podcast review, I was joined by Danilo Castro and Tom O’Brien to discuss the first collaboration between Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alexander Payne and Academy Award-nominated actor Paul Giamatti in “Sideways” to help us get ready for the release of their latest film together in “The Holdovers.” Co-starring Thomas Hayden Church, Virginia Madsen & Sandra Oh, the film was a critical darling in 2004 and won numerous accolades for its cast and screenplay. What do we think of it nearly two decades later? Grab a glass of wine and take a listen as we discuss the story, characters, dialogue, editing, direction, its awards season run, and more in our SPOILER-FILLED review. Thank you! Enjoy, and no, we are not drinking any Merlot!!
