On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies, the occasional TV show, and, once in a blue moon, another podcast, in full, spoiler-filled detail. Below, Slate movie critic Dana Stevens and Bloomberg Politics reporter Dave Weigel discuss Rosewater, Jon Stewart’s directorial debut about the Iranian detainment of journalist Maziar Bahari. Is the film actually good, or is Stewart’s involvement its only real appeal? And does Stewart succeed in his transition from satiric persona to serious, political filmmaker?
Listen to them discuss these and other questions below. You can also check out past Spoiler Specials in our archive, and you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Note: As the title indicates, each installment contains spoilers galore.
