#70 | Three Kings 2: Three Wise Men (feat. FlixWatcher)

Episode description

In a very special Podcast crossover episode, Helen and Kobi from FlixWatcher join us to discuss David O.Russell's darkly comedic Gulf War movie Three Kings, starring George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Ice Cube.

Released in 1999, Three Kings was a major breakthrough for O.Russell, grossing over $100 million and achieving widespread critical acclaim. It tells the story of four US soldiers attempting to steal a hidden cache of war gold from Iraqi soldiers during a tense 1991 ceasefire between the two countries, until a series of surprisingly brutal mishaps turn their adventure into a rescue mission. 

Join us as we discuss on-set tensions, Mark Wahlberg's journey from The Funky Bunch to serious actor and the time Harry went on a family holiday to Iraq, before attempting to navigate our near-total ignorance of middle-eastern geopolitics in pursuit of some workable sequel ideas...
