Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are making their way through the 1970s and examining two movies by each calendar year, and this episode looks at 1975's paranoia thriller "Three Days of the Condor" starring Robert Redford, and the strange and nihilistic "A Boy and His Dog" set in a post-apocalyptic Southwest and featuring a teenage loner and his dog looking for food and women.

Episode 388 includes:

-R.I.P. William Friedkin and look deeper into his udnerrated filmography. 

-Nate says "Heart of Stone" is another bland Netflix espionage action movie meant to take a nap through. 

-Ben has rejected new Hollywood movies in solidarity with the strikes, so he now chooses movies from the 1960s and 2010s to catch up on, like his own By the Decade. This week: Zack Snyder's animated owl movie. 

-By the Decade -- 1975 -- "Three Days of the Condor" / "A Boy and His Dog"

-The guys are disappointed by another supposed classic of paranoia 70s thrillers and more impressed by the weird and off-putting cult classic "A Boy and His Dog" which inspired both George Miller's Mad Max series and the Fallout video games. It's got a telepathic dog too.
