PROJECTING FILM: A Closer Walk with Thee (While You Were Sleeping meets The Cable Guy)

On this episode we talk with Brie Williams and John C. Clark and their new genre subverting film A CLOSER WALK WITH THEE. This leads to a discussion on how genre guides an audience through the story and manages our expectations for characters based on the film world they reside in. That world is a bit different when your hosts make their own mash-up of this new scary but very funny indie film as we debate the horrific merits of Jim Carrey's overbearing THE CABLE GUY against American sweetheart Sandra Bullock's romantic white lies in WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING.
ALSO: It should come as no surprise to our subscribers that one of of our hosts (Mr. Vanilla) really agrees with Matthew Broderick on a prostitute not being a cool gift to receive from a friend.
