Episode 70: Alexander Payne

crcr.jpg

Film Junk's very own Frank Knezic joins us to talk about satirist / dramedy director Alexander Payne. We start off by focusing on his debut satire CITIZEN RUTH and then we take a look at his more sentimental look at aging with ABOUT SCHMIDT.  We later expand upon some more of his other films as well including ELECTION and SIDEWAYS.  In addition, Jim takes a look at the "new golden age of television" with a brief mention of THE AMERICANS, THE BACHELOR, and more!  Frank rewatches QUICK CHANGE & NOTHING BUT TROUBLE, while Patrick does a lightning round to catch up on all the various films he's seen in the past few weeks.
