The Holdovers is a delightful movie with emotional depths that isn’t seen often in recent cinema. Alexander Payne has crafted a heartfelt movie about a group of boys left at boarding school over Christmas break. Paul Giamatti stars as the curmudgeon tasked with watching them. The film explores the depths of joy, despair, and hilarity. It’s been called an “instant Christmas classic”, and Jim and A.Ron agree.
The Truman Show is an amazing movie that was successful despite its marketing and its star, Jim Carrey, being an unknown dramatic quantity. And as good as it was in 1998, it might be even better today. Join us for a tale of a man who lives in a world of deceit, surveillance, embedded ads and science-fiction-sized wave machines.
This week, we’ve got my absolute favorite Paul Giamatti movie, Sideways. It’s a well-written but also hilarious movie where an extremely depressed Paul Giamatti begrudgingly helps his college roommate philander his way through northern California wine country. It has some all-time classic Giamatti moments that we can’t wait to talk about. Get Sideways with us this on this podcast.
