The story of the five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky and novelist David Foster Wallace is full of cinematic references. The characters visit Mall of America to watch a movie.
They watch John Woo’s Broken Arrow (1996). Moments later, when they leave the screen, several posters are noticed.
Joe Johnston’s Jumanji (1996).
Ang Lee’s Sense and Sensibility (1995).
Marc Caro & Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s The City of Lost Children (1995) – this screenshot was grabbed from DVD’s extras/behind the scenes.
They’re also watching two movies at home. The first is Betty Thomas’ TV movie, The Late Shift (1996).
The second is John Cromwell’s Algiers (1938).
Scenes from James Ponsoldt’s The End of the Tour (2015).
