American Versus Foreign Films - and Politics as Usual...
With Joe back from a stint in a Turkish prison, Joe and Abe get back to the business of discussing all things political and newsy. In this case, Joe waxes eloquent about why foreign films are so much better than anything produced in the world of American cinema. Except for Animal House, which is a work of enduring genius.
Of course, the conversation turned more political than THAT!
