Emphatic for the cinematic!

Presented by -

Much to our surprise, the ever-dependable John Black couldn't make this recording session. Fortunately, film critic Sean Burns (The Improper Bostonian and Philadelphia Weekly) valiantly stepped-up to fill in. And so our Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas episode lives!  Terry Gilliam's 1998 adaption of Hunter S. Thompson's "failed experiment in Gonzo journalism" was recently upgraded to Blu-ray by Criterion. And we go on and on about it as, you know, fans do.

Plus we discuss Kelly Reichardt's Meek’s Cutoff - a film we agree needs more love at the box office.  Do see it if you can.

We recorded episode at Panera Bread across the street from the Coolidge Corner Theater. As always, we tried to find a quiet-ish spot to record (which isn't always easy). Our apologies for any obtrusive background noise.
