SubUrbia (1996)

This week we catch up with Austin, Texas native Richard Linklater with an early career film that barely exists in the world. SubUrbia, Starring Giovanni Ribisi, Parker Posey and Ajay Naidu, sounds like it should have everything you need for a classic GenX picture but we go into why this one just misses the mark. We hang out for 2 hours in a parking lot, listen to some sweet 90s indie rock, and talk the Frighteners and Cats for far too long.

Dead Presidents (1995)

It's the Hughes Brothers sophomore picture with the ambitious Dead Presidents, with Larenz Tate, Keith David, Chris Tucker and Bokeem Woodbine.

An ambitious project which still is a very debated by critics how successful it was. We also get into Ron Howard films, David Lean and we attempt out best George McFly laughs.
