Episode 441 of 687 episodes

Long before director Cary Fukunaga made a name for himself with 'Jane Eyre' and HBO's 'True Detective,' he began work on a film about child soldiers in Africa. More than a decade later, 'Beasts of No Nation' is out on Netflix. He talks about filmmaking, his Japanese-American heritage, and scouting locations in the jungle. Critic at-large John Powers shares his list of books, music, and films he wishes he had reviewed in 2015.
