    • Film Reviews

In this episode of the show we are remembering James Caan, who recently passed away, by talking about one of his least talked about starring roles, the 1974 Freebie and the Bean. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the chemistry between Alan Arkin and James Caan, Richard Rush's particular directorial flair, the genesis of a buddy cop movie, what Roger Ebert termed a 'wunza movie' and much more! 

This episode is released in collaboration with Classics at City Cinema, with whom Randy will be co-hosting a screening of Freebie and the Bean on 9th September 2022 in Charlottetown, PEI, Canada! If you live in the area, head over there, watch this movie on the big screen and get a chance to win some Uncut Gems swag!

Tune in and enjoy!
