The dream of the 90s (or early 2000s?) is dead in Funny Pages. That’s right, we’re discussing the feature directorial debut of Owen Kline, son of Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates. Co-produced by the Safdie Brothers, Funny Pages is a grimy dark comedy from A24 starring Daniel Zolghadri (Eighth Grade) as a teenage cartoonist who ditches his boring suburban life to try and make it on his own in the city. We open the show with a quick rundown of how you, the listeners, chose Funny Pages as our review this week over Rings of Power, and we think that’s pretty funny (in a good way).
