1981, dir. Louis Malle. There still aren’t any Dinner With Andre video games, as suggested by The Simpsons, but the much maligned film—consisting mostly of a long conversation, between theater director Andre Gregory and writer and actor Wallace Shawn, about the idea of what constitutes a good life—can sometimes be as thrilling as a first-person shooter. Louis Malle’s direction is so seamless that many people are still convinced the film is merely an unedited documentation of an actual dinner between the two men.
