A film critic for publications such as L.A. Weekly, New York Magazine/Vulture, The New York Times, and formerly The Village Voice, Bilge Ebiri is one of my favorite journalists working today. Additionally, he is a writer-director known for the movies New Guy, Purse Snatcher, and The Barber of Siberia.
Joining me for a chatty, fast-paced, feature-length exploration of 6 legal thrillers made during the golden age of the genre in the '80s and '90s, we discuss The Verdict, Suspect, Class Action, A Few Good Men, The Pelican Brief, and The Rainmaker. And in taking a closer look at these films, we question why Hollywood stopped making them, whether or not audiences would enjoy the genre today, and the writers, directors, and stars that brought these works to life.
