VIVRE SA VIE — JEAN LUC GODARD

Jean-Luc Godard's fourth film features Godard's wife-at-the-time Anna Karina as an actress-turned-prostitute in this ground breaking example of the French New Wave. Stone Delicious IPA seemed like the perfect beer to go along with this equally attractive film.

THE YAKUZA — SYDNEY POLLOCK — W/ GUEST HOST JEREMY WORKMAN

Documentarian Jeremy Workman ("Who is Henry Jaglom," "Magical Universe") joins the boys to talk about Sydney Pollock's THE YAKUZA (starring Robert Mitchum, Keiko Kishi, Ken Takakura, and Richard Jordan). We kicked off the episode as our debut live-feed on Facebook.  Click here to watch http://bit.ly/2rCMzwU

Although it was Cole's idea to do Mitchum's follow-up to "The Friends of Eddie Coyle," Jeremy still had his diary notes from seeing THE YAKUZA way back in 2001. Cole broke out a bottle of Hitachino Nest's REAL GINGER BREW because it only seemed right to have a legit Japanese craft beer on the show. This is one damned fine beer. Bon appetite.

GOING PLACES — BERTRAND BLIER

Even the grandest of Bouffers are gonna have a hard time swallowing this 1974 nihilist sexual assault romp with Gérard Depardieu and Miou-Miou. An interesting but uncomfortable look at the French post-new wave sex revolution through the story of two sociopaths on a endless road trip to satisfying their desires.

LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) PODCAST SERIES

LGB BLACK

LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) is the weekly craft beer and movie podcast with Gen X veteran film critic Cole Smithey and Millennial filmmaker Mike Lacy.

Together, we copiously consume international politics and culture through the prism of a single film and a different craft beer each week.

Naturally we choose a special beer that we think reflects an aspect of the film we, or our frequent guest co-hosts, choose to dish about under the influence of a delicious craft beer. 

Anchor Steam, Ballast Point, Brooklyn Brewery, Dogfish Head, Empire, Firestone Walker, Flying Dog, Founders, Green Flash, Grim, Industrial Arts, Left Hand, Ommegang, Revolution, Rogue Nation, Sierra Nevada, Stone, Two Brothers, Unibroue, and Victory are just a few of the breweries we've featured on the podcast. 

Bon appetite!

HARDCORE — PAUL SCHRADER

We chose Paul Schrader's second film HARDCORE for this week's podcast, and Mike inexplicably thought Peak Organic IPA went along with the film's '70s era of the porno industry. The is surprisingly delicious.  Oh how times change.
