The Candidate

The Canon #37 August 10, 2015

Bobcat Goldthwait and Barry Crimmins, creators of the new documentary Call Me Lucky which follows the life of comedian Barry Crimmins join Devin & Amy this week to nominate the 1972 American satirical comedy-drama The Candidate into the Canon. They’ll discuss the transformation of Robert Redford’s character, the remarkable performance by a rare bearded Peter Boyle, how the issues tackled in the film are still relevant today, and the possibility of a sequel. Tune in to hear Bobcat share his story about the awkward interaction he had with Redford as well as what lead him to create a film following his friend Barry — and head to the forums on Wolfpop to cast the deciding vote!
