Ep. 35 – “The Player” (1992)

Ah, the sweet, sweet smell of being back.  Mark and Chad are back after an extended break!  Chad went and directed a feature film in Australia (currently untitled), and Mark’s been busy busting his butt on shows like “Preacher” and “My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”.  That said, we’re back weekly from here on out (for the foreseeable future).

Let’s get to it, shall we?

This week, Chad and Mark deep dive back into Robert Altman (that didn’t come out right)… with “The Player”, a 1992 opus that features every fucking actor ever.  The movie breaks the first rule of filmmaking: don’t make a movie about filmmaking.  If you haven’t seen it before, maybe check it out before listening – as always, we WILL spoil the movie (and cameos) for you.
