Podcast #17: Was American Gangster a Bad Idea?

Click here to listen!

Ridley Scott’s newest film, American Gangster stars a cold-blooded killer who is also a hip, likable, Robin Hood, family man type played by everyone’s favorite actor, Denzel Washington. He kills and beats numerous people in the movie, and most of the time it turns out pretty well for him.

The “good” guy in the movie, played by Russell Crowe – who’s know to throw phones at random people’s heads – is by contrast a horrible father and husband, kind of a loser, and not very suave. Also he wears really bad shirts.

So is this film really such a good idea? Listen and find out.
