Two Sides Of The Same Coin (ep. 85) – Silver Streak

We’re kicking off a month of movies with the dual comedic genius of Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. The first film on the list has a plot arc that mirrors a train’s speed – very slow to start, but eventually picks up speed until it’s barreling along by the end.

Network

I have been writing essays for the past month so I haven’t really had the time to write reviews or go to the cinema.
