Meeting Mike Judge was a real treat. Not only is he the mind behind the 90s animated sensation 'Bevis and Butthead,' (a show that my parents never let me watch as an aging adolescent), but he helped introduce the art of dry, everyday humor with 1999s Office Space.
Now, a decade later, Mike is back at it again, this time in the form of Extract, a film that dives into the misfortunes of running your own business. An impressive cast of comedic icons and some creative dialogue allow the film to hit on many levels, poking fun at the people and events that comprise our everyday lives.
Recently, Mike came to Austin to talk about his film, and boy was there some stuff to talk about. Without digging too much into his past successes, he got to dish the dirt the film, its cast and his all important future.
