Movie Meltdown - Episode 201

So we've featured many interviews with actors and filmmakers over the years, but this week we change things up a little as WE ourselves are interviewed. We welcome Emily from "The Courier Journal" who asks us to try to explain, just what "Movie Meltdown" is exactly. Then we fall right back into our usual discussion mode as we talk about this week's Sofa Theater feature "The Lie". Directed by Joshua Leonard, and starring Joshua and our beloved (adopted cast member) Jess Weixler.

And as we wax philosophic about our own existence, we also mention... the awkwardness is excruciating, a soul-crushing job, so douchey, best drip so far, indie genre cliches, voyeurism, a weekend camping, people going to their futile jobs, the Clair Huxtable look, editing the movie, the waitress at the diner, InstaGram coloration, The Blair Witch Project, Allison Anders, these hash browns are amazing,  I love Portland... I met an owl there once, maybe it's just your head and what do you do when you give yourself a day off?

Spoiler Alert:  "The Lie" has a MAJOR spoiler moment in it, so watch it beforehand for spoiler-free listening. Plus Fred spoils the end of "The Return of Martin Guerre". You have been warned!!

"It's not really about the lie." - "But which lie is it?"
