The final two episodes of Ben Mankiewicz‘s “The Plot Thickens” podcast about the life and career of Peter Bogdanovich (#6 and #7) are extremely sad and deeply moving. An account of a truly terrible tragedy and a calamitous fall from grace.

I was especially touched by Bogdanovich’s singing of a Sinatra song (“I’ll Be Seeing You“) at the end of episode #7.

It makes you want to re-read Andrew Goldman‘s q & a session with Bogdanovich (Vulture, 3.4.19). Posted on 3.6.19: “It’s the kind of interview that almost never happens — the kind in which the interview subject says exactly what he thinks. Exactly as in ‘fuck it, I don’t care.'”
