Reviewing "The Two Popes"

On today's episode I sit down with Irish journalist, playwright, and author John Waters to talk about Netflix's hit movie The Two Popes (Mr. Waters recently reviewed the movie for First Things. The movie's critical success has been impressive, and both of its main actors (Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins) have received Oscar nominations. But underneath the acting performances lies a movie that Mr. Waters calls "misguided and dangerous" because of its completely inaccurate portrayal of the subject matter at hand.
