Every week, a group of Internet radio superstars known as the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin, Sean and Travis) file into a subterranean screening room somewhere in Freakshow, IL where they witness sights & sounds undreamed of by mortal men. They emerge... changed, not quite the beings they once were. Good or bad, they will debate the merits of what they have just experienced for the entertainment of you, the listener, and the betterment of mankind.
This week, Travis introduces one of his favorite filmmakers to the group via Deconstructing Harry (1997). Woody Allen writes, directs, and stars as a neurotic writer, suffering from writers block, who becomes haunted by people and characters from his past as his short stories and real life begin to intermingle. Listen as we evaluate the merits of high-brow comedy, the career of Woody Allen, and generally become self-made film scholars overnight.
