"Where it's always Oscar season."

Two cinephiles. One mission. Every Best Picture nominee of the 21st century.

Jun 10, 2021

After making two ensemble-casted epics about disease and downward spirals ("Boogie Nights" and "Magnolia"), director Paul Thomas Anderson turned left. The result: a colorful, cosmic romance starring Adam Sandler and Emily Watson, one which he describes as a story about "finding your music."

In this episode, Mike and Brian explore PTA's career and bold stylistic choices, discuss how well those choices work and question whether "Punch-Drunk Love" should've gotten more Oscar love.
