Walking the movie walk, talking the movie talk



episode 299: Retrospectating 1999 - THE INSIDER (w/ Special Guest Brian Boarini!)


20 years ago this month, director Michael Mann released his sixth theatrical feature to widespread critical acclaim in spite of the film’s relative inability to find an audience. Mann received his first (and thus far, only) best director Oscar nomination for the The Insider and despite the fact that the film rarely gets mentioned with the same tone of reverence as Heat or even the divisive but often-defended Miami Vice, the last two decades have been surprisingly kind to this melancholy corporate thriller.

Join us as we welcome Michael Mann-super-fan Brian Boarini back to the podcast for a lively discussion about journalistic superheroes, reconciling recent history, and the unexpected cinematic benefits of frumpy, pleated pants.
