I saw this all-time-great George Clooney film when I was a 19-year-old, for the first time. I've seen it, in the ensuing 15 years, probably every year since. I even got to direct one of the actors from the film (Denis O'Hare) in an upcoming Voyage Media scripted podcast. Tony Gilroy's extraordinary movie is one of the best examples of writing, directing, and performance in an old-school adult drama, ever. Revisiting it is like hanging out with an old, rumpled, beaten-down, but lovable and dryly funny friend. How does this movie change for you as you watch it again over the years? Let me know by writing a review in Apple Podcasts or anywhere else you listen, or interacting with the show on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (search for Watch This Tonight on FB, IG, @BenamorDan on Twitter).
