Greetings, soused cinema enthusiasts,
I apologize for the lack of reviews lately. Your affable guide to alky-centric film has been struck by a monster cold. I did, however, feel it necessary to pull my ailing body from the comfort of couch to let you know that Drunk History has returned to HBO's Funny or Die Presents (a show that apart from the Drunk History segments has been much more "die" than "funny").
Last night's installment featured a history lesson on Tesla and Edison, narrated by Duncan Trussell after drinking a six-pack of beer and a half a bottle of absinthe. Nikola Tesla is portrayed by John C. Reilly and Thomas Edison is Crispin Glover. Check your listings or consult your DVR to catch the repeats.
Hopefully, I will return later in the week with a review of Charlie Chaplin's The Face on the Bar Room Floor (1914). I the meantime, it's back to the couch (sniffle, cough, sniffle).
