It’s high time we celebrate the on-screen boozer who saves the day, adds some comic relief, falls into spiraling depression or a combination of all three. To do that, we’ve invited on Alamo Drafthouse Ritz programmer Tommy Swenson — the man behind a tipsy August lineup in honor of The World’s End — who knows more than a thing or two about movie drunks.
Plus, our big interview this week is with Drinking Buddies writer/director/producer/editor Joe Swanberg who will take us into the craft brewery of his mind. Double plus, Geoff and I respond to this article about intentionally bad movies, and tie it into the overall theme as loosely as possible by drinking a beer beforehand. And after. What? It was a long day.
And, as always, we welcome your feedback.
