Oeuvre Busters

Talking good movies like they're bad movies


Talking about The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), featuring Phillip Seymour Hoffman AND with special guest hosts Kel Karpinski and Lars von Trier!

Season 2, Ep. 6

On this talent-filled episode of Oeuvre Busters, Liam, George, and guest hosts Kel Karpinski and Lars von Trier discuss 1999’s The Talented Mr. Ripley, starring Jude Law, Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, and featuring Philip Seymour Hoffman. Topics discussed: the literary works of Patricia Highsmith; one-hour photo stores; Jude Law’s glorious, glorious ass cheeks; Matt Damon's sultry voice; also, listen to Lars von Trier say terrible things about Apple Paltrow! He is such an enfant terrible, that Lars. Something we don’t discuss on this podcast? How Pinochet’s coup of 1974 opened Chile for the neoliberal economics of the Chicago Boys, economists who trained under Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago. Man, those guys were not good people!

Here's the deal. George doesn't have Instagram. Liam does. So Liam sat George down and caught him up on all things OBIG. Hilarity (?) ensued!
