In this episode: Jurassic World capably stomps, roars, and awes, and the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy reveals much about the tortured Beach Boy via two talented actors: Paul Dano as a young Wilson and John Cusack as an older version. (Be sure to read our interview with John Cusack about Love & Mercy.)

The Village Voice's Alan Scherstuhl and Stephanie Zacharek, joined by the LA Weekly's Amy Nicholson (and her meowing cat), dive into these two movies, both out this weekend.

Three NYC-centric recommendations end this week's episode: Alan suggests catching Stephanie Gray's Super-8 marvels at Anthology Film Archives in New York; Amy reminds us of The Wolfpack, a surprising doc she caught at Sundance, out in limited release now; and Stephanie encourages us to seek out the grand no-wave dramas of French filmmaker Claude Sautet, showing in a special festival June 12–18 at Lincoln Plaza in New York.
