Episode 56: David Lynch

We are back with an official episode at last, this time with two guests.  Nat Almirall and returning champion Zach Betonte are joining us for the long awaited episode on surrealist director David Lynch. Included are discussions around most of his films, but the two main reviews include the neo-noir BLUE VELVET and his more recent critical darling MULHOLLAND DRIVE.  Patrick gives it his all during the what we watched segment with another lightning round edition, Nat brings up LOL, AMERICAN SPLENDOR, THE GREAT GATSBY, Zach went to the museum of contemporary art for a unique movie-watching experience with THE PARADISE INSTITUTE, and Jim reveals his favorite movie of 2013 thus far with STORIES WE TELL.
