We crack the Steve Buscemi universe WIDE OPEN on the latest episode of HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? This time we’re talking about Tim Burton’s 2003 fantasy-drama BIG FISH, which made a lot of people cry at the time (we’ve also cried at a lot of his films since then, for other reasons). We also talk about Steve Buscemi receiving the key to New York City, dressing as his 30 Rock character on Halloween and SO MUCH MORE! Check it out!
Well, here’s something a bit different. We were both dreading having to talk about ANNIE HALL on the latest episode of PRAISING KANE (Liam even wanted to skip this episode entirely), so instead, we spend the first half of the episode talking about why we almost skipped it (yes, it’s because of Woody Allen), our frustrations with separating art from artist, and how we personally deal with films that have been poisoned by the actions of people involved. After the break we shift gears to give our general thoughts on the film and, of course, Carol Kane’s performance within. Check it out.
On this episode of HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? we’re discussing the 2014 abomination THE COBBLER, where Adam Sandler uses a magical sewing machine to literally allow him to walk a mile in someone’s shoes. It doesn’t go well. Featuring one of the most out there endings we’ve ever encountered, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Come check it out!
On this episode of FORGOTTEN GEMS? we’re looking at 1988 Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner HEAT AND SUNLIGHT from director/actor Rob Nilsson! It’s a completely improvised drama about a former war photographer who now finds himself tangling with complicated feelings about his current relationship and BOY does it swing widely between visually and formally inventive and absolutely tedious. Also, there’s FRUITICIDE. Let’s check it out!

On the latest episode of PRAISING KANE we’re looking at the Joan Micklin Silver’s 1975 film HESTER STREET, a breakout film for Carol Kane for which she was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar. It’s a tale of Jewish immigrants at the turn of the 20th century attempting to adapt to life in New York City, and you can hear Liam and Doug struggle with material well outside their regular wheelhouse! We also chat about Dick Cavett, The Princess’ Bride, the Oscar curse and SO MUCH MORE! Check it out!
