Movie Meltdown - Episode 159

This week we return to the coffee shop to discuss this week’s Sofa Theater feature, director Rian Johnson's original take on the detective genre… Brick

And along the way we mention… a mad scientist with the wall of sound, Peanuts, the Japanese guy on Gilligan’s Island that didn’t know the war was over, Lynchian, 10 Things I Hate about You, it sticks to it’s business, meeting John Carpenter and Adrienne Barbeau in the 80’s,  she’s the person who doesn’t get in wrecks… but she causes them, Blue Velvet, wearing uncool loafers, River’s Edge, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, cleaning up for the strippers, speaking Mandarin, and petitioning to get Jess Weixler a plaque. 

Spoiler Alert: Go watch Brick before listening to this episode. 

“You’re in THEIR world. They are in their own little world and everybody within that understands it… and you’re kind of playing catch up as you are thrown into it…”
