Paul and Erin review two film versions of René Fauchois' 1919 comedy of manners about a wealthy man whose life is turned upside-down when he invites a homeless man into his household after rescuing him from a suicide attempt: Jean Renoir's 1932 classic BOUDU SAVED FROM DROWNING, starring Michel Simon; and Paul Mazursky's 1986 Hollywood remake, starring Richard Dreyfuss, Nick Nolte, and Bette Midler. Spitting into a first edition of Balzac or pissing into your host's azalea garden: which will prevail? Plus: our quick takes on BROKEN HORSES, NATIONAL GALLERY, KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER, FAULTS, BACK ISSUES: THE HUSTLER MAGAZINE STORY, and BLACKHAT.
