Manage episode 333414734 series 2865408
Mike and Brian ditch the script this week to dive into not one, not two but three (OK, more like 10 ... ish) titles from 2007 that they love.
- First, "Bug," an ultra-low-budget horror from director William Friedkin ("The Exorcist," "The French Connection"), starring Ashley Judd and Michael Shannon
- Next, "Away from Her," the beautifully sad Alzheimer's love drama (and directorial debut) from Sarah Polley
- Third: director Andrew Dominik's "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford." Brad Pitt! Casey Affleck! Roger Deakins!
Then, so many. "REC." Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's "Grindhouse." Edgar Wright's "Hot Fuzz." Did you know Philip Seymour Hoffman was in three movies this year? Oh, and Judd Apatow released "Knocked Up" and "Superbad" within two months of each other! Insane year. Listen up!
