  1. Great episode on a movie that never gets old, and only gets better the more one watches it! Also, Kudos on being the first show in any medium that I'm aware of that had a guest that used a term I've only heard my father say...Potchkee, a Yiddish term for wasting time....and Mr. Segaloff used it TWICE (loved his Hurricane Billy, BTW! and look forward to his Harlan Ellison biography). Always a joy to find your show covering a favorite!!!

  2. It would have been fun discussing this one with you guys. I found the pop culture references in "Night Moves" so clumsy and obvious as to make the movie unwatchable: http://detectivesbeyondborders.blogspot.com/2010/08/arthur-penns-night-movies-plus-note-on.html

  3. This movie was 1000 times better than anything from today.
