About That New Steve Jobs Documentary


The upcoming Steve Jobs documentary from Alex Gibney (Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine) is worth seeing even if you're tired of Apple fanboys — if only for the curious parallels between Apple worshippers and the members of the Church of Scientology, the subject of Gibney's other recent doc (Going Clear).

Also on this week's film podcast, your regular hosts (Alan Scherstuhl and Stephanie Zacharek of the Village Voice and Amy Nicholson of LA Weekly) spend some time with Dragon Blade, the action-adventure period drama that made a zillion dollars in China that's coming to the States. It's the perfect movie for anybody who's ever wanted to see John Cusack play a Roman soldier.

Finally, the trio discuss Queen of Earth, a movie that unfortunately isn't as strange as Elisabeth Moss's character.

Here's a picture of Amy's cat. You'll need it.
