You ever just want to tie your family up and tell them exactly what you think about them? either. But they do it in this week's film The Ref, starring Dennis Leary, Kevin Spacey, and Judy Davis. Listen to the episode as Mike Butler and Mike Field discuss the way this film blends drama and comedy in a way that is seldom if ever used today. The Mikes also talk about how using dramatic actors in comedic parts helps to sell the truth and true emotions of characters, as well as the fact that every character in the film, no matter how minor, has an arc. Field and Butler also make a case for The Ref as a classic Christmas film that should be revisited every year. So grab your hot chocolate and marshmallows, please notice the candy canes at the front and rear of the ginger bread house, and settle down for (Forgotten Cinema).
