Episode 557: The Counselor (2013)

Special Guest: Steven Frye
Guest Co-Hosts: John Walker, James Lawrence

John Walker and James Lawrence join Mike to look at the 2013 film from Ridley Scott, The Counselor. Written by , the film is a sprawling sun-baked neo-noir wherein our titular Counselor (Michael Fassbender) gets involved in the drug trade only to set off a spiral of tragic events. Boasting a stunning cast of celebrities, the film was not well received upon its theatrical release.

Professor Steven Frye (Understanding Cormac McCarthy) joins us to discuss the author's work.

  1. Thanks for this one!!! Given the lack of mainstream reviews on IMDB, maybe this one didn't linger around the theaters much. I don't even remember it being released here in Metro DC. I purchased the Director's Cut on Amazon Prime last night and watched it. Pretty compelling movie and great noir. It will warrant another view or two.
