Grosse Pointe Blank (1997)
Mention John Cusack, and most people think of "Say Anything," "Better Off Dead," or "High Fidelity," but Gene would argue Cusack's best film is the oft-forgotten "Grosse Pointe Blank," a movie that brought out the best of every actor in it.
Thankfully, listener David from North of England was inspired by the movie's music and painful depiction of a 10-year high school reunion, giving us an excuse to discuss Ash's fear of hotel rooms, Dick's fear of never leaving his home town, and Gene's fear of never being able to go home again.
This episode also explores masterful improvisation by a killer cast, real bonds between old friends, subverted expectations, emotional rollercoasters, teen love, strong women, the makings of great shootouts, and the goddess who is Joan Cusack.
