WE NEED THOSE LEADS! Podcast leads that is! Ah! Get it?! The Immortals are reviewing Glengarry Glen Ross and it’s all about getting the leads. It’s a thing, watch the movie, they spend most of the episode talking about it. They also listen to albums by Queen and Missy Elliott and a song by Tori Amos. Then Austin watches a miniseries based off a beloved book and his friends tell him to stop watching Gotham. Some friends they are! THEY PROBABLY DON’T EVEN HAVE THE GOOD LEADS.
This week on The Immortals, the gang reviews The Godfather. HAVE YA HEARD OF IT? They discuss whether or not one of the most beloved films of all time is any good. They also listen to some Minutemen and Motorhead as well as watch a Werner Herzog documentary about a POW. Get excited!
Austin and Eric finish up their Robert DeNiro series with the 1995 crime classic Heat. They are joined by one of the lead writers of TheFilmYap.com, Nick Rogers, who wrote an excellent essay on the film. They debate the film’s final decision and what it means to be a slick and emotional criminal in Michael Mann’s world.
