Date #4: “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” with Paul von Stoetzel

This week I go on a date with filmmaker Paul von Stoetzel of Killing Joke films to see the most popcorn of popcorn films: Mission Impossible: Rogue NationIt’s a lively discussion about Tom Cruise and a variety of other filmmakers.

This date was recorded at the bar in the theater, so there’s a little bit of background noise, which I tried to mitigate.
