And we have reached Mark’s #1 all-time favorite movie. Is it too soon? He thinks not because there are so many other movies in the collection that are great. This movie is #62 on the AFI 100 Years… 100 Movies list.
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.
Additionally Mark is going to be on the SUNSHINE SUMMIT 2019! The Sunshine Summit, hosted by Sunshine and PowerCuts’ Heather Welch. Mark will be appearing live March 12th at 8PM EST (March 13th 1PM NZT). You can see all of the info at SunshineSummit.live !
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.
