Spike Lee, Elizabeth Olsen and Michael Imperioli Talk Oldboy

(SPOILER ALERT: If you have not seen either Spike Lee’s Oldboy or the original Korean film you might want to wait to listen to these interviews as plot elements are mentioned. You have been warned) 

Oldboy is one of the best movies of the year and definitely the craziest. Unlike most film-buffs, I saw this version first, and was glad I did because it gave me different perspective from most people covering the film. I watched the original two days later and then went to the Conrad Hotel in New York City to discuss the film with it’s director Spike Lee, as well as it’s stars Elizabeth Olsen and Michael Imperioli. 

First up, Spike discusses the film as a whole as well as some of the differences between his version and the original. Next, Elizabeth Olsen takes us behind the curtain of a sex scene and talks about what is was like working with the much older Josh Brolin. Last but not least, a dream come true for this die-hard Sopranos fan as after Michael Imperioli tells me about working with Spike for the sixth time he briefly discusses the greatest show of all time, his dear friend the late James Gandolfini and in what form, if ever, David Chase would ever consider bringing back the show.

This is a LOADED podcast that you do not want to miss if you are a fan of either Oldboy film. Oldboy is in theaters NOW and the original is on Netflix so check them out and them take A Shot of Yager!
