The ever delightful Wigfield by Paul,
Amy Sedaris and Stephen Colbert that details the can-do town that just
may not and all the colorful occupants.
The amazing unabridged audio
book of Wigfield. It is narrated by the authors
and is a great listen.
Paul helped Amy Sedaris to write
her new book and has a recipe and hilarious instructions for his
calf-stretcher. Good times! The book is amazing & worth every
penny, but amazon has the cheapest price around
The audio book read by Amy,
which is a guaranteed formula for hilarity. Amazon.com also has the
best price on this as well.
I Am America (And So CanYou!), to be released October 9th, which Paul contributed heavily too (but will likely go uncredited).
The abridged audiobook with 3 CDs, "shouted by the author". Paul will make an appearance. A sample can be found at Audible.com
1997 Paul plays the lead, Jimmy Nova, in this parody movie of Plump Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and Natural Born Killers.
1992 Paul plays a very small role as Casey, an eager chauffeur in this Dolly Parton movie. Completely adorable.
2008 Paul plays Mr. Rooney, a serious lawyer, in this fanciful comedy directed by Michel Gondry.
The Blu-Ray version of the movie for High-Def action of Mr. Rooney!
Paul listed these movies as his favorites in an Indiewire interview. They're all really intriguing and good films, so check them out if you haven't. It's fun to see how each one has had an influence on his work. I especially recommend The General. Paul listed Buster Keaton as one his biggest creative influences.
A waifish prostitute wanders the streets of Rome looking for true love but finding only heartbreak. IMDB link
A lot of SWC sort of undertones can be seen in this movie. Cabiria is a Jerri Blank-esque character in her mannerisms and innocence.
When Union spies steal an engineer's beloved locomotive, he pursues it single handedly and straight through enemy lines. IMDB link
Buster Keaton is a great physical comedian and this movie is a real classic.
Recent college graduate Benjamin Braddock is trapped into an affair with Mrs. Robinson, who happens to be the wife of his father's business partner and then finds himself falling in love with her teenage daughter, Elaine. IMDB link
A naive male prostitute and his sickly friend struggle to survive on the streets of New York City. IMDB link
Dustin Hoffman is wonderful as Ratso.
A bureaucrat in a retro-future world tries to correct an administrative error and himself becomes an enemy of the state. IMDB link

On the run after murdering a man, accountant William Blake encounters a strange Indian named "Nobody" who prepares him for his journey into the spiritual world. IMDB link
This movie is really beautiful and darkly funny. I can see how it influenced Wheels of Fury.
An insane general starts a process to nuclear holocaust that a war room of politicians and generals frantically try to stop. IMDB link
Paul lists this as the movie that changed his life. "I never thought you could put satire and slapstick together, but that film puts those two elements together beautifully."
