Podcast Like It's 1999

Jul 17, 2019

In 1999, there were three distinct takes on the modern American mafia. 
One, The Sopranos, was wildly successful both commercially and creatively and remade both American's understanding of the Italian Mafia, as well as the entire television industry.
A second, Analyze This, performed respectfully at the box office and among critics, providing audiences with both unexpected laughs and pathos.
A third, Mickey Blue Eyes, had Hugh Grant trying to talk like an American gangster, which sounded like a man choking as he attempted to gurgle marbles. 
Join Phil and Kenny as they discuss the least successful, but silliest (!), entry in the late 20th Century mafia canon.
