#310: Todd Solondz / Top 5 Performances of 2010 (So Far) / Stalag 17
There's only one thing that can top a new Filmspotting episode featuring an interview with Todd Solondz about his new film "Life During Wartime," a discussion of the final film in our Billy Wilder Marathon, "Stalag 17," and our Top 5 Performances of 2010 (So Far) ... and that's to welcome in a brand spanking new member of Filmspotting Nation. That's right, there's a new Kempenaar on the block! Congrats to Adam and Sarah on the birth of a healthy baby boy that Uncle Matty is tentatively naming Mattias Lemmon Bridges Kempenaar the II.

NOTES / CORRECTIONS
- Thanks to Sam Van Hallgren for stepping up on short notice and doing the heavy production lifting on this episode! Without Sam and Golden Joe, there truly would be no show.
- Not sure about that Isaiah Berlin essay Todd Solondz was referring to? Read about "The Hedgehog and the Fox".
- Senses of Cinema article on "Stalag 17."
