On this episode we account for the cinematic crimes of Ben Affleck in his new film THE ACCOUNTANT. This inspires guest Ben Zuk to join in a MIDNIGHT RUN of assessing the merits of that film starring Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin against De Niro and Kevin Costner in THE UNTOUCHABLES. All of this and some compliments to the beauty of Andy Garcia in an episode produced from the set of MIDNIGHT RUN!

On this episode Ben Zuk returns to program another Woody Allen film INTERIORS, which is combined with HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG for the biggest downer double feature after seeing the new popcorn thriller THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN. Though not similar in style or tone, all three films feature women who long to go home but doing so results in tragedy.
We also discuss the literary merits of beach reads and AMERICAN PASTORAL as a $14.99 paperweight.
