Oh Yeah! On this weeks episode of WatchThis w/Rick Ramos, Rick goes after the Media with a vengeance. After a dissapointing viewing of Michael Mann's new film Blackhat, Rick takes a trip down the Rabbit Hole into Mann's filmography examining the director's criminally underseen 1999 masterpiece The Insider. Featuring brilliant performances from Russell Crowe, Christopher Plummer, and Al Pacino, Rick brings you one of the most powerful films of the 90's and a superb examination of the media and personal bravery. Continuing the theme he takes a look at - one of his favorite directors - Sidney Lumet & Paddy Chayefsky's 1976 Academy Award winner Network - a film that radically altered the landscape and has proven sadly prophetic. You're not going to want to miss this episode. Once Again, Thanks for Listening & Thanks for All of the Support! It Is Appreciated.
