Looking at cinema's present via its past. The Next Picture Show is a biweekly roundtable by the former editorial team of The Dissolve examining how classic films inspire and inform modern movies. Episodes take a deep dive into a classic film and its legacy in the first half, then compare and contrast that film with a modern successor in the second. Hosted and produced by Genevieve Koski, Keith Phipps, Tasha Robinson and Scott Tobias.

The 58th annual Chicago International Film Festival closes out the fall fest season with screenings of highly anticipated titles from Sarah Polley, Rian Johnson, Martin McDonagh, Park Chan-wook, Noah Baumbach, and others. But with 90+ features playing over CIFF's ten days - many of them available via streaming - there are countless under-the-radar …
 
Greg Motolla’s new CONFESS FLETCH revives the character of Irwin Fletcher, popularized by Chevy Chase in the mid-‘80s, but its low-key, shaggy-dog quality is less reminiscent of those films than Robert Altman’s 1973 comic neo-noir THE LONG GOODBYE. So we brought longtime friend of the show and Altman aficionado Noel Murray in to join us in revisiti…
 
Caught up in a storm of bad press following its festival debut earlier in the month, Olivia Wilde’s highly anticipated DON’T WORRY DARLING finally opened in theaters and was met with mostly scornful reviews. But the movie has its defenders—including Josh. So he and Adam get to spar over the movie’s handling of its social critique and get into some …
 
Adapting the appendices of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth saga for a streaming series slated to run for 40 episodes is a much different exercise than paring down the writer’s most celebrated work to feature-length, which is one reason, among many, that Prime Video’s new THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER feels like a different beast than dire…
 
With the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in the news and Her Majesty Viola Davis currently on screens in Gina Prince-Bythewood’s THE WOMAN KING, Adam and Josh devote this week’s Top 5 to a consideration of movie monarchs. Making the cut: film royalty like Bette Davis and Katherine Hepburn and a certain teen queen who wants us all to eat cake. That To…
 
The new streaming series THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER is not technically a prequel to Peter Jackson’s early-aughts film trilogy, nor is Jackson involved with the series, but it’s hard to imagine it existing in a world where Jackson’s films hadn’t already provided a best-case scenario for large-scale screen adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien…
 
Andrew Dominik's long-in-the-works Marilyn Monroe tale BLONDE (based on the 1999 novel by Joyce Carol-Oates), offers a nightmarish portrayal of the actress and icon that avoids some of the pitfalls of celebrity biopics (thanks in part to its impressive formal approach) while running headlong into others. Mostly in agreement on the film, Adam and Jo…
 
George Miller’s new fantasy-romance THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING may not have made a splash in theaters, but your Next Picture Show cohort agrees it’s the sort of odd-duck movie that tends to age well, in part because it fits nicely into the sturdy category of “stories about storytelling.” Even more so than its central djinn character, that inte…
 
George Miller’s new 3000 YEARS OF LONGING is a story about storytelling that’s full of color and pageantry, which makes it a nice match for producer Alexander Korda’s 1940 fantasy THE THIEF OF BAGDAD — and that’s before the films’ respective djinns even enter the equation. One of the most technically ambitious films ever made, THE THIEF OF BAGDAD’s…
 
When George Miller's THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier in the year, it was met with some pans, some shrugs, and some raves (including a six-minute standing ovation). Most agreed, however, that it was an unexpected departure from a director whose previous film was "Mad Max: Fury Road." An intimate and inte…
 
The fall movie season has lots of intriguing titles that raise all sorts of questions. De Armas as Marilyn. Black Panther without Chadwick Boseman. Spielberg in autobiographical mode. This week, it's a Fall Movie Preview in the form of Adam and Josh's five most pressing questions. Plus, their picks for the 5 Most Anticipated Films of the Fall. 0:00…
 
If Dutch director Halina Reijn's BODIES BODIES BODIES doesn't remain the definitive snapshot of Zillennial life in the early 2020s, that won't be the fault of the ace ensemble, featuring standout performances from Rachel Sennott ("Shiva Baby"), Maria Bakalova ("Borat Subsequent Movifilm"), or Amandla Stenberg ("The Hate You Give"). Josh and guest c…
 
Indie distributor A24 started memorably, if modestly, back in 2012 and 2013, with titles like Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" and Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring." Within the next couple of years, they'd launched the directing careers of Alex Garland ("Ex Machina") and Robert Eggers ("The Witch"). Then in 2016, they went ahead and - very memorab…
 
When Brad Pitt arrived on screen 30+ years ago, he was a pretty face with a surprising sinister side. That brief turn in Ridley Scott's "Thelma and Louise" proved to be a template for the actor's diverse and increasingly accomplished film career. For proof of Pitt's growth as an actor, look no further than the very existence of this week's TOP 5 PI…
