We flashback to 1999 the week, for the Spike Jonze & Charlie Kaufman head trip, Being John Malkovich! An amazing movie that has aged wonderfully, becoming more complex and sad with each subsequent viewing. This is Ben’s first crack at it, Lauren’s second, and I’ve lost count, which is why it is probably my pick! So open the door on the 7 & 1/2 floor with us, as we dive in and hope we don’t end up on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike.
Download. Listen. Enjoy!
