Kevin Costner eases white America into the now with McFarland, USA, we hear about the Berlin Film Festival's highs (Queen of Earth) and lows (Knight of Cups) and dip into the lukewarm waters of a second Hot Tub Time Machine movie, and there's much praise for teen comedy The DUFF and Wild Tales, a film filled with stories of humans acting badly. We also hear about the plight of Fluffy, the cat owned by director Alex Ross Perry. Your hosts (Amy Nicholson, Alan Scherstuhl, and Stephanie Zacharek) are joined by film critic Jordan Hoffman for this week's feature-length pod.
