An actor has dinner with his friend, a theater director, at an Upper West Side restaurant. Together they discuss everything from money to death to love and all the superstition in between. Playing variations on their own New York-honed personas, the two dive in with introspective, intellectual gusto. All captured in a delicate, but artful detachment.
Special features (disc 2): Interviews with actors André Gregory and Wallace Shawn by filmmaker and friend Noah Baumbach; "My dinner with Louis:" an episode from the BBC program Arena, in which Shawn interviews director Louis Malle; accompanying booklet featuring an essay "Long, strange, trips" by critic Amy Taubin and prefaces written by Gregory and Shawn for the published screenplay.
