The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)

 Rated R for a few cases of f-bombery.


Here comes some comedy mixed with tragedy to kick off Year #2 of the Next 100 Project. In this 45th episode (that kinda starts out as the Grand Budapest Hotel podcast, actually), we tackle the hilarious performance by Gene Hackman and Wes Anderson’s admirable determination to go his own twee way.  Of course, there’s more, but why ramble on here? Order up some Sparkplug Coffee and press play!
