leads this week’s discussion and the boys are wowed by the performance of Sasha Lane and Andrea Arnold’s ability to artistically and enthusiastically capture this certain sub-section of the American “Dream.” Moving quickly into comedy, we’re excited to have more Christopher Guest on our plate; even if it is ten years in the making. Does Mascots
disappoint or exceed? Lastly, while “Game of Thrones” is on break, HBO continues to churn out top-notch content. This fall it is an extended take on Michael Crichton’s “Westworld”
complete with a big budget and an animatronic Micheal Wincott. Needless to say, the sprawling nature of the show, the graphic violence and sex and the interesting questions it raises about humanity, robotics, corporate America and God are really up the proverbial alley of your humble hosts. For a Watch List this week, Kurt got out to see more from The Toronto After Dark Film Festival with Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Creepy
(a Japanese version of The ‘burbs of all things!) while Andrew needed more of the western genre and opted to go top tier with Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West
