Ace in the Hole podcast review

Austin and Eric disagree for the first time on the show for Billy Wilder’s most cynical film. It’s the story of a corrupt journalist who lands in New Mexico where he blows up a small rescue story into a media circus. Is this movie a warning for today’s times or is it just unredeemable behavior on display? Regardless, it’s important to talk about when looking at Billy Wilder’s canon.
