End of the Tour / Capote

Since his death in 2008 at age 46, a kind of cult has developed around writer David Foster Wallace. For proof, look no further than the existence of THE END OF THE TOUR, the Sundance hit starring Jason Segel as Wallace, along with Jesse Eisenberg as Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky. The film – from SPECTACULAR NOW director James Ponsoldt – documents Lipsky's five-day interview with Wallace following the celebrated publication of the author’s INFINITE JEST. Adam and Josh review THE END OF THE TOUR and revisit their Top 5 Movies About Writers.
