Episode 18: Glengarry State and Main

State and Main David Mamet
David Mamet Madness!

This week, Faults in the Vaults, we're taking a look at a few works from the great mind and pen of David Mamet. We're passing on the set of steak knives and giving the sack to 1992's Glengarry Glenross and then we're heading for small town America to make a big picture out of State and Main (2000).

Mitch cracks open The Mailbag to discuss another possible financial windfall and answer questions about reboots.

This Week in Torrents returns and Josh chooses to highlight the special collection of Beavis and Butt-head that is The King Turd Collection Vol 2. In The Soapbox Rant, the guys take issue with the Bechdel Test as a critical benchmark. For Slipping Through the Tracks, Josh picks up the gauntlet and brings attention to the interesting history behind Anton Karas' Soundtrack to The Third Man (1939).
