Mistaken identity is the latest theme. David Mamet's "Things Change" (1988) is the story of an old Italian shoe shiner who's agreed to take the fall for a murder, but then is mistaken for a Mafia boss. Matt loves this film and Adam liked it but thought it could have been better. "The Talented Mr. Ripley" (1999) is one of those under-appreciated movies that M&A feel has so much going for it, it should be seen by everyone. They both agree Philip Seymour Hoffman steals the film with less than 10 minutes screen time. A must see.

Next up, bad-ass chicks is the theme as we watch a couple films suggested by one of our listeners, Night of the Comet (1984) and "The Legend of Billy Jean" (1985)

Thanks for listening!
