Description

On this week's episode, Jamelle and John discuss the strange, surprisingly sleazy 1987 thriller No Way Out, starring Kevin Costner, Gene Hackman and Sean Young. Topics of discussion include Costner's strikingly bland persona, the contradictions within Reaganite conservatism, the futile quest for national unity, and the late 1980s as the last hurrah for the idea of the carefree white man.

This movie is too Cynical for you guys? For a podcast with a pretty cynical title itself, I can only logically assume your hatred of Kevin Costner has clouded your logical reasoning. RIP Fred Thompson
