#835: Pig / Old / Chungking Express (Wong Kar Wai #3)

Getting Nic Cage for your debut feature is a risky move. On the one hand, Cage is both a big name and a singular talent. On the other hand, Cage's eccentric on-screen persona can send a movie reeling into camp. PIG director Michael Sarnoski rolled the dice and won, bringing real pathos to his missing truffle pig saga, and getting Cage's most subtle and moving work in at least a decade. Adam and Josh also continue the World of Wong Kar Wai Marathon with the director's 1994 international breakthrough CHUNGKING EXPRESS. Plus, Josh defends M. Night Shyamalan's OLD–while also advising Adam to avoid it. 0:00 - Billboard 1:10 - Review: "Pig" Chris Egan, "Traveling Troubadours" 22:36 - Josh reviews "Old" 28:37 - Giveaway / Next Week / Notes 37:26 - Polls 47:53 - Wong Kar Wai #3: "Chungking Express" 1:30:18 - Outro  Learn more about your ad choices.
