ALL TEN EPISODES OF THE PEDESTAL PODCAST SEASON 2 ARE NOW AVAILABLE

In our first ever Personal Pedestal episode, we’re emotional vampires with the 2002 Roger Avary black comedy THE RULES OF ATTRACTION.

 

Shane explains why this movie is on his own personal pedestal, and why it made him think Roger Avary was a superior director to Quentin Tarantino (8:36). We then begin the case for putting it on the pedestal with the kinds of risks Avary took that we had never seen before (13:42). We gush over the famous “movie within a movie” euro trip scene (15:53), debate whether or not the dark satire does more damage than good (31:20), and if Paul was the breakout character (42:09). We move on to the case for keeping it off the pedestal with Van Der Beek feeling very miscast (51:13), how everything has a “student film” quality (54:17), and why in retrospect Shane found so much of this movie very annoying (58:42).
