Lawyers Out Of Their Depth
It doesn’t matter if you specialize in insurance, personal injury or petty naval law, Hollywood knows attorneys can do anything when the gavel starts pounding. We watched three movies about lawyers in way over their heads, fighting that good fight. Spielberg’s new “Bridge of Spies” pits Tom Hanks against an amoral Cold War world. “My Cousin Vinny” (1992) plays politely with New York and Southern stereotypes in a half-comedic courtroom. And “A Few Good Men” (1992) is novice Sorkin set in screamy military court with a dynamite cast. Now, call your first witness!

Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
