It’s finally starting to feel like fall, from film festivals to kids returning to school (and hopefully getting vaccinated if they’re old enough), and we’re here with all the reviews and news for you on Breakfast All Day. Christy, Alonso and Matt discuss the Zoom-era charmer “Language Lessons,” the documentary “Fauci,” Paul Schrader’s latest “The Card Counter,” and “Come From Away,” the joyous filmed production of the celebrated Broadway musical. And in a very different kind of segment — which we’ll do again if you guys like it — we revisit the truly bonkers David Bowie puppet musical “Labyrinth,” which is having a Fathom Events re-release for its 35th anniversary. In news, we discuss the heartbreaking death of Michael K. Williams at just 54, the Toronto and Venice film festivals (and the red carpet return of Bennifer), The White House requiring government employees and contractors to get vaxxed, that deliciously bitchy Los Angeles Times story about Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, “Shang-Chi” star Simu Liu‘s hilarious stock photo modeling history, the emotional Steve from “Blue’s Clues” video and Bob Odenkirk‘s return to “Better Call Saul” after his heart attack. And over at our Patreon, we recap the latest “Ted Lasso” episode, which was both heartwarming and a gut punch. Thanks for joining us during this jam-packed week, and hope you’re healthy and well.
