EVERYONE!!! We are back with a new episode, and this time, we dive into the 90s action arthouse film "Leon: The Professional" (or whatever your territory decided to call it). We follow along with the dynamic, yet complicated, duo of cleaner Leon and vengeful, young Matilda as they hunt down crooked cop Stansfield (an exquisite Gary Oldman). We'll discuss Leon's childlike sensibility, Matilda's many traumas, Oldman's ad libs, the sweeping score, the controversies, the French style, and more. So join us as we open the door on this bloody, but still brilliant film.
