Ep. 186 – Christopher & Eric’s True Crime Movie Time Presents “The Untouchables”

July 1, 2023

Some days your hosts think this podcast should be retitled THIS IS NOT THE MOVIE WE REMEMBER. Such were the feelings of both Christopher and Eric when they revisited what many consider to be a classic mafia film. If by classic you mean shot through with the dangerously self-assured, vigilante ethos of the Reagan years and a penchant for absurdly wild spectacle that throws history out the window. The True Crime Movie Time Summer Film Festival brings you THE UNTOUCHABLES, a bafflingly popular shoot ’em up that helped launch the career of a young Kevin Costner while giving the great Robert DeNiro precious little to work with. Did David Mamet really write this script? Did studio notes wreck what could have been a great film? Could one of its key sequences have been about ten minutes shorter if logic had been employed or pretentiousness curtailed? Christopher and Eric tackle these questions and more as the first true crime pairing in Midwest Mayhem comes to an exciting (or not) conclusion.
