The guys take it down a notch after the blockbusters of last week. First they review American Animals, director Bart Layton’s follow-up to The Impostor. Does Layton’s trademark gamesmanship around the boundary between reality and recreation pay off in his film based on a true story centered around a heist by college students? Wade and Kevin then turn to a zombie apocalypse, Australia-style, with their review of the Martin Freeman-starring Netflix film Cargo. This episode is brought to you by Plot Devices: creators of the Storyclock Notebook.
