Episode Notes

Adrift in the world. Two Americans get Lost in Translation. The midlife crisis is a redux of the 20 something finding their place in the world. 2003, Focus Features, and the rise of the existential indie into the mainstream. It’s ok to be a rude fuck if no one can understand you anyways. It would be nice if Americans learned something about the immigrant experience from Lost In Translation but that’s probably too much to ask. Double Feature takes a trip back to magic time in their lives with He Died with a Felafel in His Hand. Missing out on the present. Eric recalls the most obvious thing he didn’t even think to film during The Birthday Massacre 2006 Bootleg.
