FS #226: Burn After Reading / Toronto Recap / Egoyan Interview / Fall Movie Preview
Thursday, 11 September 2008 19:00

Sept. 12: George Clooney joins Brad Pitt for some Dumb and Dumber antics in the latest Coen Bros. comedy "Burn After Reading." Will the Brothers Coen follow up their critically-acclaimed "No Country for Old Men" with another sensational effort? Or will "Burn After Reading" leave Adam and Matty nostalgic for the likes of "The Ladykillers" and "Intolerable Cruelty" ... yikes. Plus, Matty was so excited when he heard Adam had brought him a gift from his recent trip to the Toronto International Film Festival; Matty was holding out hope for a lock of Bryan Adams' hair but would have been satisfied with a six pack of Molson. Fortunately for Filmspotting fans (but unfortunately for Matty), Adam came back bearing his Top 5 Toronto Films and an interview with legendary Canadian director Atom Egoyan ("The Sweet Hereafter") discussing his new film "Adoration." Plus, your hosts find time to preview the Fall slate with their Top 5 Most Anticipated Fall Movies.

Also on the show: Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre and music by Ari Hest.
