Forgotten Cinema - Sneakers

Best film you've never heard of!

Forgotten Cinema tackles a film with Robert Redford, Ben Kingsley, Sidney Poitier, River Pheonix, Dan Akroyd, and James Earl Jones....

...wait...this is "forgotten" cinema, right?

Sneakers, released in 1992 and directed by Phil Alden Robinson, is a terrific heist film starring the stars listed above and then some. Mike Butler and Mike Field discuss the fun dynamic between the great cast, the interesting character of Kingsley's "Cosmo," as well as some of the not so great moments that are a bit far fetched (to Butler anyway). The Mikes also try to figure out why Sneakers is now, more or less, a forgotten film.
