014 – Horses Are Racist (Round 1, Part 14)

Play

A little late but no less great! That’s right, sports fans, we’re back with another classic episode of the pod, where we reaffirm our positions as heads of the Newman/Redford Booster Club, fawn over a certain pair of directorial brothers, and marvel at a film that smiles in the face of a cruel, uncaring world. Oh, and we should note, one of these movies did not age well. How badly did it age? Well, badly enough that our discussion merits big ol’ content warning for CSA. It ain’t all roses in this one, but there are great discussions all around. Also fuck horses.

This week’s matchups:
The Sting vs. No Country for Old Men
Leon: The Professional v. Nights of Cabiria

See the bracket [SPOILERS AHEAD]
