Movie Meltdown - Episode 111

This week's Sofa Theater feature is Tatia Rosenthal's animated film "$9.99". What kind of movie works in cookies, a pet piggy bank, smoking a stick of gum, talking bean bag chairs, missing mothers, naked clay-animation people, physical manifestations of the voices in your head, shaving all your hair off, a magician, swimming like a dolphin and an angel...all in the name of discovering the meaning of life? The answer is, an unusual and visually impressive project called "$9.99". Plus we discuss Red, Cloak and Dagger, Commando and Final Fantasy 12.

Spoiler Alert: Most of this can't be discussed without spoiling the majority of this plot. So go watch the movie before listening.
