#286: A Single Man / Top 5 Lead Performances of 2009
1. Listen to a 15-minute discussion of "A Single Man," a gorgeous set-piece film starring Colin Firth as a grieving 1960s college professor -- playing only in select cities that I will probably never see.
2. Digest the Top 5 Lead Performances of 2009, as determined by Adam, Matty and Steve Prokopy, the devilishly-handsome film critic from Ain't It Cool News (also known by his net d'plume Capone).
If your New Year's resolutions for 2010 read as above, then you're in luck. You can clean them out in one fell swoop by listening to this week's episode of Filmspotting (perhaps even by listening on the treadmill while at the gym because, come on, we all know that pair of jeans didn't really shrink). In related news, Matty's resolution of "writing the blandest show descriptions ever in the hopes that Adam relieves him of his show description writing duties" seems to be in full effect.
Also on the show: Music by Puerto Muerto and Massacre Theatre -- presented by Pixar Talk. This week's winner will get the Pixar DVD of their choice.
