Melissa McCarthy takes a break from her usual absurd comedy hijinx (thank FSM) to play real-life lady Lee Israel, a biographer who when her books stopped selling she found an alternate cash flow: forging letters by literary figures and selling them to collectors. Accompanied through her miserable existence largely just by her aged cat and a homeless fellow alcoholic played with gusto by Richard E. Grant, Lee is a misanthropic but witty mess. But what did our crew think of it? Listen to Chris, Marco, and Aaron give their review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
