Elise and Dave look at two late-90s, low-budget, little-known indies, the high- concept/single-gag (depending on your point of view) MAN OF THE CENTURY (1999) and the ahead-of-its time (linearly speaking) THE STICKY FINGERS OF TIME (1997). Frank Gorshin's presence in the former film occasions autobiographical digressions about your hosts' abortive adventures in screenwriting. Dave inexplicably neglects to mention that the protagonist of his screenplay was a nicotine-addicted rabbit who substitutes carrots for cigarettes. Elise, prompted by the title and imagery of STICKY FINGERS, gets off-the-chain explicit. And in the feedback section: some breakthroughs.
