I'm not listening to your podcast, but given the vitriol you're getting in this thread, subby, your too-intelligent headline has delivered, so I give it a Thumbs Up.

I remember two guys talking and then Wallace Shawn taking a late bus home. No memory of what they talked about.


They had a battle of wits involving wine and iocane powder.

UNC_Samurai: My Dinner With Andre was one of those first flashpoints where the films people liked, and the films critics/awards committees liked, began to significantly diverge.


The 90s remake was called Cliffhanger.

It certainly informed the Andy Kaufman vehicle "My Breakfast with Blassie".

Lot of people here can't seem to figure out that Siskel & Ebert got started on Sneak Previews on PBS. And instead of you know, googling it, they embrace their laziness with the comments seen here.

What I love about this movie is that at first, it feels like the movie wants to highlight Andre and wants us to think he's great and we should drink in his wisdom, but over time, Wallace Shawn shows how full of shiat he is and how the wealth and privilege Andre says he wants to foreswear is what lets him do what he does.
