The Popcorn Auteur

Pretty straightforward. We watch all the movies of famous filmmakers and then discuss anything and everything that happens to interest us about them.

Jan 22, 2024

In this episode, we are joined by high school teacher and wine drinker (not at the same time), Mark Staron, to discuss the films of Alexander Payne. We had a fun discussion covering everything from voiceovers and Omaha to which film made us cry the most. We also drank some wines featured in Sideways, so all in all a successful podcast.

As always let us know what we got wrong on Facebook, on Twitter, @PopcornAuteur, or email us at
