MISSION IMPOSSIBLE (1996)

The cows are joined by friend Adam Kane to talk about Tom Cruise’s first outing as Ethan Hunt. We discuss what makes spy movies so appealing and fun, and situate the movie in the broader cultural context of the post-Cold War nineties. We explore the weird and wonderful career of Tom Cruise and how he managed to harness Brian DePalmas stylistic flourishes to create one of the tightest, most stressful, spy/heist movies ever.
