Pleasantville (1998)

 This is an R-rated episode. Sorry to all you pleasant people.

We’re going back to when times were pleasant (well, for a certain type of person they were) in our Next 115 Project podcast. Tobey Maguire and the high-larious Reese Witherspoon headline the tremendous cast (Macy, Allen, Daniels, on and on). Director Gary Ross tackles a lot of topics, starting with a brilliant comedy, then turning the movie into a racial parable. One of us has issues with the way he did that, but neither of us has any problem with the remarkable F/X that blend colour with black & white. For some remarkable black coffee, go to and, if you use the promo code “top100project”, you’re going to save 10% on your 1st order.
