Today on the site, we're running one of our most ambitious Dissolve Canon lists to date, The 50 Most Daring Film Roles For Women Since Ripley. The process behind making the list was unusual: On this week's podcast, we go behind the scenes to talk about our rationale for the list, the balances we were hoping to strike, and what constitutes a “daring role.” Then we reveal our uncomfortable viewing experiences, supplemented by some great stories from listeners via voicemail, email, and Twitter. The game this week, inspired by the hero dog movie Max—which will no doubt inspire us right back—tests our panelists' knowledge of dog movies, from the Benji vehicle that ignited one of Siskel and Ebert's most famous blow-ups to the actors that took over the Beethoven series after Charles Grodin departed. Then Tasha and Genevieve throw down in our quick-fire recommendation segment, 30 Seconds To Sell.
