One Crazy Night: American Graffiti vs. Four Rooms


The genre: One Crazy Night.

The movies: American Graffiti and Four Rooms

It's boomer nostalgia vs. '90s indie-zaniness.

Our guest this week is Blake Iverson, an entertainment and business attorney, adjunct professor, artist manager and retired trivia host.  

Where to find Blake:

George Lucas' American Graffiti was the director's second film, and immediate predecessor to Star Wars.
