  1. Great podcast. Surprised that only Lori puts it in her top 100. As far as the other Cazale films, I would have The Conversation and Dog Day Afternoon on my top 100. Looking forward to the Halloween podcast.

    1. I’d say The Deer Hunter was the only film of Cazale’s I didn’t like, and the Halloween podcast will be the second time we’ve reviewed the film. We reviewed it on Lunchtime Movie Review a few years ago.

    2. Surprised to hear Patrick say something nice about best years of our lives, didn’t think he liked that film.
