    Mind blown.
    The first twenty minutes or so, I was afraid this was going to be a really dull film (I already knew the whole premise was two guys having a conversation for nearly two hours), but I ended up mesmerized. In fact, when the movie ends, I ended up feeling a little let down because I wanted the conversation to keep going!
    I'll also admit that, like SeanMX12, it was the episode of Community that got me interested in seeing this movie in the first place.

    A perfect picture of a moment in time when the rosy-hued dreams of community and consciousness of the 60s and 70s came to rest, as it were, in the conversation of two men approaching middle-age. The screenplay is a marvel in itself. 10 years 9 months ago
