Truth & Movies: A Little White Lies Podcast #83: The Old Man And The Gun / Sorry To Bother You / The Sting
To mark Robert Redford’s retirement from acting, this week’s Truth & Movies is dedicated to the veteran Hollywood icon. Alongside host Michael Leader this week are Manuela Lazic and Adam Woodward, who give their thoughts on David Lowery’s The Old Man & the Gun, starring Redford as an ageing bankrobber who’s on the run but nearing the end of the road. Next up is Boots Riley’s urgent, endlessly inventive social satire Sorry To Bother You, which may just be a little too thematically-dense for its own good. And in Film Club, the gang revisits 1973’s Best Picture winner The Sting, starring Redford and Paul Newman – two screen icons at the absolute peak of their powers.
