With Geoff back from California, he and Rob dive right into the big news of the week including the resurrection of Stanley Kubrick's unrealized film Napoleon (0:50), and a somewhat lacklustre opening weekend for the new Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them(5:30).

Then, Rob fulfills a lifelong dream as he sits down for a conversation with the legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Rescue Dawn, Aguirre: The Wrath of God). Werner breaks down why the distinction of "best working actor" is a two horse race between Michael Shannon and Joaquin Phoenix (12:00), talks about the experience of filming in North Korea (16:40), and weighs the pros and cons of releasing a film on Netflix (23:45).
