This week we pay tribute to the dearly departed Ray Liotta with his first feature film, Jonathan Demme's Something Wild! It's hard to pin down exactly what this film is. Is it a road trip comedy? Is it a romantic comedy? Is it a chase thriller? Instead, it somehow manages to be all of those things. It's extremely entertaining!
As for the soundtrack, we'll talk about a couple of the Talking Heads flying solo, we'll discuss the film's fascination with reggae and afrobeat, and we'll even reconnect with podcast favorites New Order and Oingo Boingo! So fasten your seatbelts, because you're in for Something Wild!
