It is a new year and we celebrate with a ridiculous movie that may not be great but is way better than it had any right to be. Kelvin Hatle joins us to watch Josie and the Pussycats, a subversive comedy about product placement and corporate greed. It is also exceptionally silly and features an absolutely amazing performance by Parker Posey. You have probably never watched this movie and while it is surprisingly dated for a film only fifteen years old, it is still a lot better than anyone could have expected.
Our next film will be an entirely different experience as we watch La Dolce Vita!
