#195: Barry Levinson / Marina Zenovich / Top 5 2008 Sundance Entries
Adam and Matty return from Sundance without any good Paris Hilton stories, but with a lot of great things to say about their Top 5 Sundance Film Festival Entries. Plus, Adam sits down with director Marina Zenovich, whose documentary on the circumstances surrounding Roman Polanski's trial and exile from the United States in the late '70s -- "Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired" -- premiered at Sundance. Adam also caught up with director Barry Levinson to discuss his new send-up of Hollywood -- "What Just Happened?" -- starring Robert De Niro, Catherine Keener and Bruce Willis.
Also on the show: Massacre Theatre, Listener Feedback, reflections on the passing of Heath Ledger, and a look at the 2008 Oscar Nominations announced earlier this week.
Music by Utah Carol from the album "Comfort for the Traveler."
