Teenage Master Criminals | Episode 65
Posted July 12, 2017
They may be aces behind wheels, sharks in pressed uniforms, and imps tiptoeing up to jewelry boxes, but are they even old enough to vote?
This week, Noah and Chance try not to be taken for fools by prodigious teenage crooks. They begin a bit divided on the surprise summer hit BABY DRIVER, about an iPod-toting getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) trying to survive a few final heists. A bit after the 20-minute mark, they discuss Sofia Coppola for the second straight week, but this time it's THE BLING RING, a docu-realist portrait of spoiled Hollywood youth. What on earth is this movie trying to tell us? And at 40 minutes, we suit up with Steven Spielberg's CATCH ME IF YOU CAN. A favorite of both your hosts, this movie arguably marks the end of effortless-era Spielberg. We also unpack the symbiotic obsession of '60s conman Frank Abignale Jr. and his FBI pursuer. These some are some cute kids; watch your wallets.
