Highly Suspect Reviews: Papillon

Based on the true story (and not as much on the original legendary 1973 adaptation with Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, the makers would have us believe), the unenviable task of taking on this story of two inmates at a French Guyana prison who repeatedly attempted to escape is left to Charlie Hunnam and Rami Malek. Does it in any way live up to the original? You’ll have to listen to Chris, Patience, and Ben’s review to find out.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
