The Commitments (#38)

On the list this week is #38 with a bullet! The guys break down the 1991 Irish hit The Commitments about a fictional all-white soul band out of Dublin! They discuss Alan Parker’s very unique and un-Hollywoodlike casting process, the strength of the musical performances, the bittersweet ending, they debate how much truth is contained in Joey the Lips’ stories and much more!

The guys also roll the dice to find out what they’ll be watching next week. Join us, won’t you?
