Chasing Amy - 3/9/13
This week, Brent places Kevin Smith's Chasing Amy (1997) on the block. Pre-Good Will Hunting/Bennifer/Argo-director, Ben Affleck, stars as a comic book writer who falls in love with a cute lesbian comic book author (Joey Lauren Adams), and the hilarious hijinks that ensue in this unconventional love story. We argue about the cinematic oeuvre of former filmmaker-turned-podcast-impresario-and-stand-up-comedian, Smith; trace character links through the View-Askewniverse; learn about the hitherto unknown "90's Stank"; and crush Brent's dreams of sending this podcast to Kevin Smith himself. NOTE: due to a technical problem, this week's podcast's audio is overmodulated. We've done everything we can to make salvage it. We promise to do better next time!
