Top 5 Jonathan Demme Moments / Something Wild

When the great Jonathan Demme passed away in April, he left behind one of the most acclaimed and diverse filmographies in American movies. Demme will always be remembered for the Oscar-winning "Silence of the Lambs," but his 1986 cult road trip comedy SOMETHING WILD may be an even better representative of what made Demme so special. This week, Adam and Josh catch up with that Demme blindspot and (with a little help from some friends) share their Top 5 Jonathan Demme Moments.
