Ep 218 Sanae “Sandy” Narita!

Konichiwa film nerds! Chris and Graham are in Hong Kong, Tokyo with Sandy “Big Fan Japan”. They talk about running around Tokyo filming for Ear Buds. Graham watched The Lady on the plane and really liked it. Chris finally saw Grand Budapest Hotel and was glad he did. Uncharted Waters is a good surf doc, according to Graham. Sane talks about some of her favorite Kurosawa films like Sanjuro. If you spent your entire life looking for the perfect episode, it would not be a life wasted.
