This episode of Mark’s Movie Collection goes way into the characters and the plot of the movie. If you haven’t seen the movie yet please watch it first. If the first episode wasn’t a spoiler this one definitely is.

American Graffiti is the 1973 film by George Lucas that may, in fact, have changed the way that movies were made. Aside from being one of the most profitable movies based on budget-versus-return this is also the origin of a very standard modern movie style and the origin of a fairly normal style of movie soundtrack. It’s got cars, antics, and really poignant coming-of-age points.

Check American Graffiti out! It isn’t streaming anywhere but it is rentable or purchasable on the big services and you can also pick up a DVD or Blu-ray copy. Watching this movie before listening to this podcast is definitely recommended.
