This week’s CinemAddicts has us covering The Little Prince, Little Men, and Can We Take A Joke? Anderson’s currently at camp and, as I am writing this, I am simply bushed from a full week of doing the Television Critics Association tour (NBC and ABC). Basically, I’m brain dead as i write this recap.
Anderson and I completely disagreed on Little Men (I loved it – he appreciated aspects but wouldn’t recommend the film). However, we both dug the stand out performance of Michael Barbieri as the gregarious Brooklyn youth who isn’t afraid to speak his mind. I’m a huge fan of naturalistic, nuance driven meditations of life, and Anderson admits that this type of movie isn’t up his alley.
I didn’t see the doc Can We Take A Joke?, and Anderson gives his take on the film during the third segment (he’s recommending the movie but with a few caveats). Gilbert Gottfried, Penn Jillette, and Adam Carolla are among the interviewees.
Kids for Cash is Anderson’s streaming pick and I briefly discuss the Blu-ray for The Invitation, a Hollywood Hills set thriller that tone of bite. Click on the media bar below to hear this week’s latest episode.
