This week on Someone Else’s Movie, I travel to the Upper West Side of Manhattan for a chat with author, journalist and screenwriterJon Ronson, who’s someone I’ve been hoping to get on the podcast pretty much ever since I started it.
And with the release of Okja last month and the imminent arrival of his new podcast project The Butterfly Effect, this seemed like the perfect time to grab him. Also I was in New York, so it just made sense.
Jon picked Tomas Alfredson’s exquisite Swedish coming-of-age drama Let the Right One In, which is also an exquisite horror movie, and if you haven’t seen it you should absolutely chase it down before you listen to the episode, for there are spoilers aplenty for both that and Okja.
But once you’re prepared, though, jump right in! You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, Google Play Music and Stitcher, or grab this week’s episode directly from the show site. However you listen, please enjoy it. Jon’s great, and this conversation was everything I hoped it would be.
