Welcome to a brand new episode of Film Club, The A.V. Club’s weekly movie-discussion series. The culmination of a remarkable rise from an independent production helmed by a self-taught filmmaker to the Toronto International Film Festival, Andrew Patterson’s buzzy indie-sci fi movie The Vast Of Night makes its debut on Amazon Prime today. It’s an inspiring story, but is it also a great film? Our critics A.A. Dowd and Katie Rife weigh in.
Because The A.V. Club office is closed for the time being, and everyone on staff is social distancing, this episode was recorded remotely.
