Ep 018 // My Left Foot
In what is without a doubt, the most pretentious movie picked so far, Tate picks Daniel Day Lewis' My Left Foot from 1989. Is our anonymous third co-host finally going to be able to say the word auto-biographical? How many of the hosts suffer from podophobia? Apparently, Al Michaels is a big fan of this movie. The only way to find out the answers to these questions, and how we know about Al's personal movie opinions, is to listen in. This movie was directed by Jim Sheridan.
