The B-Movie Podcast: Standing Room Only – Brawl in Cell Block 99 @ Beyond Fest 2017
10 minutes of pure and unadulterated blathering about the brilliance that is Brawl in Cell Block 99. The follow up film from Bone Tomahawk writer/director S. Craig Zahler is exactly what you hope and pray for when you watch an B-Movie and a sophomore effort. This is as much a throwback to the crime cinema of the 1970’s as it is something newer. Casting Vince Vaughn is a stroke of brilliance. Part Robert Mitchum. Part Burt Lancaster. All bad motor scooter. Vaughn make that Walter Matthau turn to the darker Charlie Varrick side of the street and it’s amazing.
