Episode 026: Good Time & Lenny

MG takes on two films about guys on an inevitable downward slide - each played by actors whose star was on the rise: Bob Fosse's politically incorrect manifestoLenny, stars Dustin Hoffman as the boundary-shattering, fantastically offensive, and deeply troubled comedian Lenny Bruce, and the Safdie Brothers'Good Time, stars the former butt-of-sparkly-YA-vampire-jokes-turned-indie-darling Robert Pattinson. The performances are both incredible, and the films themselves are groundbreaking, radically stylish, and risky narratives for their time - but MG is slightly split on which one really pulls off what it is attempting! #MartiniGiant
