Episode 25 – War Crimes: Paper Moon / Surviving the Seventies

or: Never trust a man who dresses like Fred from”Scooby Doo”


Hunter and Chris give thanks for Hunter’s War Crime, Peter Bogdanovich’s 1973 conman con-medy Paper Moon. Chris preaches the good news of an Okie-based, Bible-themed brew, (plus an old-school sodey pop that pairs well with your coney island), while Hunter condemns the sartorial sin known as the Ascot. In Special Features, the Dudes discuss the Hollywood New Wave in Surviving the Seventies – why did some 70s era filmmakers continue to thrive, while others simply faded away? *PLUS* Hunter and Chris share what movie events they’re thankful for in 2015!
