We apologize for this, but the contents of this episode are so spectacular that I’m sure you will enjoy it regardless!
We are joined by the wonderful director Barry Sonnenfeld (The Addams Family, Men in Black, Get Shorty) to discuss the pivotal film, Dr. Strangelove. Barry elaborates on how this movie has influenced his entire career. He reveals that the only way to make a comedy is to make sure no one working on the film knows it’s a comedy. And he also talks about the process of writing his new book, Barry Sonnenfeld, Call Your Mother: Memoirs of a Neurotic Filmmaker.
