"It works beautifully, often going deeper than you might expect, and Goldstein’s manner — gentle, positive, and playful — is easy to appreciate. Oh, and talking about death. Each guest must describe his or her own death before naming a movie they want to show in heaven. It may sound forced, but it’s not — and it leads to some fascinating talk."

"With guests as diverse as Ricky Gervais, Edgar Wright and Gillian Jacobs, Goldstein’s breezy presenting style lends itself to a concept that is simple but terribly enjoyable, and it is the fact that Goldstein’s intimidating knowledge of films gravitates just as much towards popcorn flicks as it does high art that makes his podcast so compelling. This is a film podcast that you really don’t have to be a cinematic expert to enjoy."

"With the show, multi-hyphenate British entertainer Brett Goldstein has created something truly remarkable: a lively podcast built around a stock set of seemingly simple questions that, in application, reveal a deceptive brilliance. With the show framed around the conceit that each guest has died, it affords them a platform to have an entirely open, honest conversation about death, the afterlife, spirituality, and mental health. These days, that feels like exactly the kind of thing we all could use."
