Reeler Podcast: For Your Consideration

Christopher Guest and company discuss satire, striving and the trouble with Oscar

The Reeler caught up with Christopher Guest last week in New York, where the actor was making the publicity rounds on behalf of his new Oscar-season send-up For Your Consideration. He brought his core four -- Catherine O'Hara, Parker Posey, Harry Shearer and co-writer Eugene Levy -- along with him, and in this edition of The Reeler Podcast, we bond over Oscar loathing, bicker over satire and try to get to the bottom of just how doomed the poor actors in Consideration might be in the long run. HINT: Guest decided to cut a scene featuring their weathered tombstones. It's that kind of movie.

But it is also funny and honest, as are its principals, so please do have a listen:
