Episode 27: Harry Torino

Old Timer Vengeance!

This week, Faults in the Vaults takes a look at two films dealing with what happens when old white men are pushed too far. We're driving Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino (2008) to the scrap yard in order to seek vengeance for Harry Brown (2009).

Our good friends at Raleigh Soapery return and contribute a question about awkward movie going experiences in this week's Mailbag. The guys discuss the pros and cons of Stranger Things in this edition of The Soapbox Rant. In Diggin' Up the Docs, the Herzog discussion streak alive as Josh highlights his brand new film, Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016).

Mitch goes Slipping Through the Tracks this week with a selection from earlier in the career of popular German composer, Hans Zimmer, specifically his work on John Boorman's South-East Asian political drama, Beyond Rangoon (1995). And in the new segment, Recycled Cinema, Mitch briefly discusses frequent Zimmer collaborator -- Christopher Nolan's 2002 remake of Erik Skjoldbjærg's 1997 Norwegian crime thriller, Insomnia!
