This week we’re outside the walls with Negan who surely must be on the hunt for Lucille, right? I mean, he stops in a sporting goods store and everything! Whether it’s Lucille or something else, he doesn’t find what he’s looking for. Also, a whisperer is captured, interrogated, and probably launching a manipulative plan for escape. I guess we’ll see!

The Hustler (1961)

Today we’re talking 1961’s The Hustler, which might just be the greatest movie about the game of pool that has ever been made. Starring Paul Newman, Piper Laurie, and George C.

Join us for a discussion of this ambitious film which we both love and hate.
