Cinecast #47: Almost Great American Road Trip
Tuesday, 18 October 2005 01:00
Boy, it  sucks to be miscast. Hear all about it in Cinecast #47.

Elizabethtown: Never has the absence of John Cusack been felt more profoundly. Writer/director Cameron Crowe's newest film comes 20 years too late for perfect casting, but despite this -- and many other -- flaws, "Elizabethtown" never quite fails to succeed at being 'a Cameron Crowe film'. Heartfelt, honest, and filled with great music, Crowe may over-reach at times, but there's no denying his unique ability to capture the bittersweet rhythms of life.

Also on the show, Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre -- presented by Movies -- and a look ahead to Friday's Top 5 Soundtracks.

Music by Neko Case courtesy of Bloodshot Records ... Cinecast theme music by Age of the Rifle.
