Talking Movies With Patton Oswalt

When we spoke to Patton Oswalt last week, he had not seen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but the comedian was willing to discuss movies with Phoenix New Times.

He doesn’t have as much time to head to the movie theater as he did in the late ’90s, back when his obsession with all things cinematic peaked, which he documented in his 2015 memoir Silver Screen Fiend.
