Keeping It Reel Podcast #10 – The Films of Tony Scott

September 3, 2012


This week, Demetri and I look back on the filmography of director Tony Scott, who recently died on August 19th when he jumped off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in Los Angeles, CA. Scott’s unique visual style left an indelible mark in the cinema world, especially high-octane, frenetic action and suspense drama/thrillers. He made two movies with Tom Cruise (“Top Gun” and “Days of Thunder”), two with Gene Hackman (“Crimson Tide” and “Enemy of the State”), two with Brad Pitt (“True Romance” and “Spy Game”), three with Val Kilmer (“True Romance” and “Deja Vu”), and five with Denzel Washington (“Crimson Tide”, “Man on Fire”, Deja Vu” and “The Taking of Pelham 123” and “Unstoppable”). We recently went back and watched some of Scott’s films and in this episode you can listen along and find out what we thought of them and how they hold up.
