Big Gulps, huh? Alright...well, why you're here, you might as well get comfy, settle down for a spell, and catch up with old friends. This edition of Overlapping Dialogue has us hitting the highway for two road classics, Stranger Than Paradise & Dumb and Dumber! But before we arrive there, we take a few detours with a Blue Plate Special discussion of the surprisingly adequate Halloween Ends, the wickedly talented (iykyk) The Devils, and the considered brilliance of Tár, Todd Field's long awaited return to filmmaking. This week's duo is just as offbeat and eclectic: listen as we discuss Jim Jarmusch's 1984 portrait of hipster malaise, the Farrelly Brother's 1994 idiotic odyssey, and the curious connections both films have in depicting the joys and pitfalls inherent to the open road.

All great things must come to an end, so what better way to conclude our ten episode misadventure through crime cinema than with Dog Eat Dog, 2016's gloriously indulgent psycho romp from master of the form Paul Schrader? First though, this episode's Blue Plate Special raises its glass to salute the life and career of French trailblazer Jean-Luc Godard- we attempt to put into words his incalculable contribution to the entirety of cinema - before we briefly recommend the new horror film Barbarian. But have no fear, we eventually dive head first into Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe's disasterpiece: listen as we discuss how Dog Eat Dog improbably charted a career comeback for its director, how exactly this stylish potboiler taps into Schrader's reliable thematic goodie bag of tricks and treats, and generally puzzle with fascination over how the heck Christopher Matthew Cook and his brisk but memorable character, Diesel, fits into the proceedings. This episode of Overlapping Dialogue represents a sort of end of an era for the podcast...be sure to stay tuned for the very end to hear us unveil a new format and focus moving forward that has us very excited for what our future holds!

Looking for your weekly dose of generational trauma, misdirective cinema, and grease stained Ben Mendelsohn? Luckily, The Place Beyond the Pines, 2013's crime-drama-tragedy-mini-epic, is here to save the day! Before we make our way down its dark and winding road, come with us as we make a quick pit-stop and chow down on a Blue Plate Special that leaps from a discussion of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial and its theatrical re-release in honor of the classic film's 40th anniversary to an ambivalent consideration of Three Thousand Years of Longing, the latest film from Mad Max maestro George Miller. In due course, all roads lead to Schenectady and its eclectic cast of angels and demons, prompting a wide-ranging deliberation including but not limited to the weighty yet delicate brilliance of director Derek Cianfrance, the distorted magic that inevitably sparks from pitting early 2010 stars Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper up against one another, the at once simple and tortuous structural framework at play, and a special observance for one particular line reading from Emory Cohen.

This episode's exploration of crime cinema guides us through the seedy underbellies of Boston...or New Orleans...or Sawmills...or wherever the heck Killing Them Softly, Andrew Dominik's 2012 political diatribe in hood's clothing, takes place. But before we revel in the muck, we partake in a Blue Plate Special selection that salvages something from John Waters's 1972 cult behemoth Pink Flamingos, find a lot to love with the new A24 slasher Bodies Bodies Bodies, and celebrate the bittersweet conclusion of Better Call Saul. We eventually get around to casing the goldmine of a genre movie that is the subject of this episode, one which prompts a discussion of all things Brad Pitt, a consideration of Dominik's updating of novelist George C.

Hop on into the squad car and bear witness to one of the most notorious cops in cinematic history with Bad Lieutenant, Abel Ferrara's controversial 1992 masterpiece. But before we scrutinize this grisly mugshot of a movie, this week's Blue Plate Special find us fielding 2022 thoughts on Steven Spielberg's 1979 disaster 1941 (with us so far?); glancing into the hall of mirrors psychological gauntlet Synecdoche, New York from none other than Charlie Kaufman; and find a lot to love in Nope, Jordan Peele's latest blockbuster chiller. The time finally arrives to merge onto this episode's degenerative off-ramp of a movie, forcing us to confront an outright daring Harvey Keitel performance while grappling with what sets Ferrara and his direction apart within the crime genre, not to mention a discussion of content that warranted the film its infamous NC-17 rating. It goes without saying this episode isn't for the faint of heart but perhaps you'll agree that the unlikely redemption makes the brutalist filmmaking all the more rewarding.

This week's episode, perhaps the most special in our history, has us palling alongside a delightful pack of miscreants with 1977's The American Friend! But before we get around to our latest entry in our series of crime films, this week's Blue Plate Special finds us contrasting the listless Airport 1975 with the eclectic brilliance of The Red Shoes, Menace II Society, and Moulin Rouge! before celebrating the lives of James Caan and Tony Sirico. Upon checking off all our boxes and stocking up on all the essentials, we finally hit the open road with none other than director of The American Friend himself, Wim Wenders- who joined us live and in person at the Huffman Brothers Productions Studios! Listen as the German New Wave icon dishes on the arduous production process with madman Dennis Hopper, his tempestuous collaboration with Patricia Highsmith, where his relationship with Francis Ford Coppola currently stands, and what he remembers about Caldwell County's own Willard Blevins from the early 1980s.

Happy Hour the new Blue Plate Special! We Seenagers still love to party, we just prefer to do it a little earlier than we used to. Ok, like a lot earlier. Like 4 o'clock works. Conveniently that's when Happy Hour usually starts at most bars around the country. That's pretty much the time the ol' time Blue Plate Specials we used to make fun of started too. Yes, those same Blue Plate Specials that in our minds were for blue-haired old ladies and senior 'shufflers.' There aren't many Blue Plate Specials left these days, but for us Seenagers, Happy Hour is a perfect replacement. It works basically the same way, at the same time, at the same price minus the blue plate with compartments for the main dish and some' sides.' We Seenagers are way cooler than those old blue plate people were. Hey some of us might even have blue streaks in our hair, but that's intentional. We belly up to the bar rather than shuffle but do hope for comfortable stools. Preferably with back support. Oh, and we like foot rails on both the bar bottom and the stool bottom because balance is key for comfort. We order half-priced drinks and appetizers until time runs out like a game show at six or seven and before the 'crowds' come. Happy Hour like the ol' Blue Plate special, not only helps save a couple bucks but also keeps us from having to drive home too late in the dark. We Seenagers don't want to drive too far in the dark unless we have to, so local Happy Hours are always appealing. Now that people are vaccinated boosted and venturing out more, I've noticed more and more of our fellow Seenagers enjoying Happy Hour. It's a great way to be reminded how much fun life used to be when people weren't afraid to be near other humans. Plus we still get home with enough energy left to catch up on our latest Netflix binge or if 'coupled' to fool around - which is usually a toss-up decision. For single Seenagers whether they drink alcohol or not, Happy Hour is always a friendly way to enjoy new connections of all ages. Basically Happy Hour is the new Saturday night out on any day. Which is good because every day these days feels like 'anyday,' but that's another show. Enjoy this latest episode.

Remember that gum you like? Well, it's going to come back in style...and leave you with plenty to chew on. This week's episode finds us cautiously shuffling through the enchanting, delicious nightmare known as Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, the prequel/marginal-sequel to the beloved cult classic TV show that fills in a few gaps while crafting whole new gulfs along the way. But before we traipse through the labyrinthian corridors of the Red Room, we discuss a recent profile of Francis Ford Coppola that acts as its own coda to our recent Godfather episodes, followed by a fully-loaded Blue Plate Special with topics as diverse as the most recent acts of cultural terrorism perpetrated by the Walt Disney Company with their Storyliving suburban experience, discussions of trailers for the forthcoming summer releases Elvis and Nope, and a bite-sized review of Netflix's The Power of the Dog. We eventually take in the wispy Douglas firs and Norma's signature cherry pie upon entering the city limits of Twin Peaks, with an introduction covering our own journeys with the show and director David Lynch generally, how its narrative and aesthetic concerns evolved not only over time but between iterations and mediums, interpret how exactly Fire Walk With Me simultaneously expanded the emotional and mythological scope of the series, talk about the ways in which The Return would go on to further enrich all that came before it, and what exactly the entire Twin Peaks phenomenon "means" to us. Don't worry, there are no clear-cut, easy answers to be found, only a profound sense of emotional catharsis. And we wouldn't have it any other way.

Are you searching for that special movie that openly invites you to log on, hack in, go anywhere, and steal everything? Then baby, you're in the right place because our latest episode has us gone in 60 mbps with Swordfish, the slick action thriller that once again challenged our assumptions on the lengths to which John Travolta would go to further embarrass himself. But before we jack into this wannabe Matrix...this week's Blue Plate Special finds us loving John Sayles's 1987 union masterpiece Matewan, waxing nostalgically at the 2000 Disney Channel original movie Phantom of the Megaplex, and taking issue with the very existence of the deeply stupid 2000 mob "comedy" The Crew. Speaking of questionable cinema from the early 00s, our discussion and commentary of Swordfish parses what exactly such a work is attempting to posit on a moral or ethical level, evaluates the extent to which this movie's premise and stylings ape a post-Tarantino cinematic philosophy, and assess the extent to which it's the least bit justifiable to fashion a movie about terrorism on the eve of 9/11 as smugly entertaining as this. Come for the pretentious monologues on the unreality of the opening moments of the 21st century, stay for the latest inductee of Overlapping Dialogue's Hall of Fame (the Immune) and a special announcement at the episode's conclusion about a very brief but special upcoming series of episodes we have in store...

This may be the beginning of a beautiful podcast... We open up this week's podcast with some thoughts and observations on the NFL Wild Card Weekend before diving into a Blue Plate Special filled with WWII pictures The Longest Day (1962) and Kelly's Heroes (1970). Upon finally ducking into the exotic saloon known as Rick's Cafe, we discuss what exactly about Casablanca makes it among the most legendary creations in the history of cinema, why the movie's aged over the past eighty years like the finest of wines, how it fits into the evolution of Humphrey Bogart's iconic star persona, and delight in the deliciously arch performances of Claude Rains and Conrad Veidt (#FindOne hive unite).

We worked overtime and then some, burning every ounce of midnight oil we had, when it came to bringing you our very first episode of 2022 on Into the Night, John Landis's 1985 nocturnal romp. But before we get there...we discussed, for likely far longer than necessary, why exactly Valkyrie, the laughable 2008 historical drama, is perhaps the "greatest middle school movie ever" before diving face first into a Blue Plate Special involving thoughts on last year's Annette, a new segment within a segment called Baggage Claim where we gradually traverse our way through the Airport franchise, and finish off with a celebration of the lives and careers of Hollywood legends Sidney Poitier and Peter Bogdanovich. This week's subject film is every bit as scattershot as the rest of that intro, as it includes but is not limited to an unexpected but terrific pairing of Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeiffer, the thrilling comedic aesthetics of 80s Landis, a two scene villain turn from the legendary David Bowie, and more director cameos than a DGA sponsored picnic.

Anchors aweigh on 2021 as we deliver our very last episode of the year with Otto Preminger's colossal 1968 "comedic" misfire Skidoo! But before we steer directly into the iceberg, this week's Blue Plate Special has us parsing the Matrix sequels (Reloaded, Revolutions, and the latest Resurrections) for meaning and edification, followed by an outright celebration of Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film Licorice Pizza. Upon finally arriving to the Mad Magazine-esque pastiche that is Skidoo, we critique the ways in which television began altering the stylings and aesthetics of film comedy in the 1960s and beyond, question the decision making of dramatic filmmaker like Preminger endeavoring to direct a comedy as scattershot and misguided as this, and in general mourn the presence of stars (in this case from the 1930s) rapidly approaching their expiration dates.

Have yourself a very Spidey Christmas with everyone's friendly neighborhood webhead and his very first cinematic outing from Sam Raimi and company in 2002. But before we dig into the biggest present under the tree, we sort through the Blue Plate Special-themed stocking stuffers, ranging from discussions on the forgotten gem Where the Buffalo Roam and contemporary classic The Matrix, inspired in part by the latter film's recent sequel/reboot The Matrix Resurrections. We finally tear through the Tobey Maguire-adorned wrapping paper to parse the myriad ways in which the character of Peter Parker and his various iterations remains among the greatest creations of comic book storytelling, mull how superhero films have evolved (or arguably devolved) over the past two decades-plus, and in general take multiple trips down memory lane to gloriously relive a childhood favorite.

In honor of the approaching behemoth known as December 25th, we decided to load up the shopping cart and max out the charge card with one of the...Schwarzenegger-est movies in the Christmas canon: 1996's Jingle All the Way! Listen as we discuss the wildly idiosyncratic film career and public life of Ahnuld, delight in the ingeniously specific performance of Phil Hartman, parse the endlessly problematic material supplied to a very funny Sinbad, and in general guffaw at the litany of contradictions in the holiday season and its corrosive relationship to capitalism.

We take a little break from the audio commentating to do a little bit of audio pontificating on a whole host of topics, starting with a Blue Plate Special concerned with re-litigating the holiday classic The Nightmare Before Christmas before finding a lot to love in Guy Maddin's My Winnipeg. This week's bonus episode finally gets around to the broad and nearly indefinable topic of what exactly happens when history and filmmaking collide. What does the art form of cinema "owe" the people, places, and ideas of the past and what do such interpretations have to tell us about the times in which they were produced? We follow up a parsing of the various modes, highs, lows, and all in the middle when it comes to notable examples of historical films and finally get around to pitching some of our own ideas of past peoples or events ripe for contemporary consideration.

What better way to follow up last week's episode on an elegant period piece drama about the mid-20th century (see Jackie) than yet another exploration of the immutable soft screams of love gained and lost with Carol, Todd Haynes's 2015 masterpiece? But before we get there...this week's Blue Plate Special has us talking some football and sharing some belated joy over the Las Vegas Raiders' remarkable Thanksgiving Day overtime victory against the Dallas Cowboys, taking issue with the general existence of the new Disney Plus release of the legacyquel Home Sweet Home Alone, and finally settling once and for all what exactly qualifies something as a "Christmas movie." Upon finally arriving on the firmly closed doorstep (real Harge Heads know) of the week, we dive into what makes Haynes one of the singular artists of his generation while discussing how the contrasting presences of stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara make for a most compelling duo.

We thought we'd follow up last week's lengthy labyrinth of an episode on the events of November 22, 1963 with a more quiet and graceful remembrance of the same day and its lasting after effects with 2016's Jackie. But before we take yet another stroll down the American Century's middle period...this week's Blue Plate Special finds us discussing our recent experience seeing legendary rock band Genesis early on their ongoing The Last Domino? tour before transitioning to some thoughts on Wes Anderson's latest The French Dispatch. The film of the week inevitably sparks a discussion on recent trends in biopics and period films over the past decade and how exactly Natalie Portman's brilliant performance and Larrain's icily precise direction at once subvert and compliment the very sort of myth making historical fictions have been forging for centuries.

This program was held live on Wednesday, September 16th at noon. About the book: Kerri Arsenault grew up in the rural working class town of Mexico, Maine. For over 100 years the community orbited around a paper mill that employs most townspeople, including three generations of Arsenault's own family. Years after she moved away, Arsenault realized the price she paid for that seemingly secure childhood. The mill, while providing livelihoods for nearly everyone, also contributed to the destruction of the environment and the decline of the town's economic, moral, and emotional health in a slow-moving catastrophe, earning the area the nickname “Cancer Valley.” In Mill Town, Arsenault undertakes an excavation of a collective past, sifting through historical archives and scientific reports, talking to family and neighbors, and examining her own childhood to present a portrait of a community that illuminates not only the ruin of her hometown and the collapse of the working-class of America, but also the hazards of both living in and leaving home, and the silences we are all afraid to violate. In exquisite prose, Arsenault explores the corruption of bodies: the human body, bodies of water, and governmental bodies, and what it's like to come from a place you love but doesn't always love you back. A galvanizing and powerful debut, Mill Town is an American story, a human predicament, and a moral wake-up call that asks: what are we willing to tolerate and whose lives are we willing to sacrifice for our own survival? About the authors: Kerri Arsenaultis the Book Review Editor at Orion magazine, and Contributing Editor at Lithub. Arsenault received her MFA in Creative Writing from The New School and studied in Malmö University's Communication for Development master's programme. Her writing has appeared in Freeman's, Lithub, Oprah.com, and The Minneapolis Star Tribune, among other publications. She lives in New England. Mill Town is her first book. Kate Christensen is the author of six prior novels, most recently The Astral, and the memoir Blue Plate Special. The Great Man won the 2008 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction. She has written reviews and essays for numerous publications, including The New York Times, Vogue, Elle, The Wall Street Journal, and Food & Wine. She lives with her husband in Portland, Maine.

Our March book club pick was one of our very favorite books, The Noticer, by one of our all-time favorite authors, New York Times bestselling author, Andy Andrews!! We were beyond thrilled for the chance to talk to Andy, and we had a blast even with some wi-fi difficulties! (never fails, right?! Get to talk to one of your mentors, and well, God reminds you who ultimately is in control.) Andy is the author of more than 25 books including The Noticer, The Noticer Returns, and his latest Just Jones:  Sometimes a Thing is Impossible...Until it's Actually Done. You may have seen or even heard Andy before.  He's made over 200 appearances on national television.  He's also done over 1,000 radio interviews, and you just may have heard portions of his speeches played on SiriusXM's comedy channels!! Also, very cool to note, Andy has been to the White House on several occasions and has spoken at the request of 4 different presidents of the United States. Aside from all of that, Andy is just a laid-back guy who we were so honored to meet and were even invited to join his Blue Plate Special (https://youtu.be/OceRfHzNr7U) show next time we are in Orange Beach!     HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS WEEK'S SHOW: We asked & chatted with Andy about:    We actually heard your story before picking up The Traveler's Gift and then The Noticer. Can you talk a little bit about how you decided to take control of your choices when everything felt so bleak? Jones' perspective of things is so amazing and unique. When he says something, it's like a light bulb goes off like something was obvious, but it's easy to "stop noticing" things too. How do you keep your noticing-muscle strong? Jones has such a great sense of humor. Does it match your own? What would his (Jones's) take be on all of the changes we've seen since the pandemic? Would he have any wisdom to share for our country right now? You do such an amazing job weaving in Christianity through storytelling. Has your faith always been a cornerstone for you? We know you're a big reader just from the books you mention in your books, do you have any favorites you think everyone should read? We would be kicking ourselves if we didn't ask, what's your favorite food in the Orange Beach area? What are you working on now?
