This week we journey to the Bay Area, sort of, for a pair of movies that are kind of set in San Francisco, Phil Alden Robinson’s all-star 1992 caper/heist film Sneakers and Otto Preminger’s 1949 noir melodrama Whirlpool. We also talk about our Essential Hacker Films, the career of Robert Redford and share the definitive list of the 12 Greatest Living Narrative Filmmakers.
