Eli and Charlie Sisters (John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix) are very different people but they are brothers and they do work together as assassins. It’s the old west and gold fever is high. Their boss (Rutger Hauer) assigns them a task: find Riz Ahmed who is a scientist who developed a formula to find gold, and do whatever it takes to get it out of him. With the help of a Pinkerton detective (Jake Gyllenhaal), they might just get the job done but, with expected hijinx on the way. Sounds like an action-comedy-western, right? Apparently not so much. Listen to Beau and Ben discuss this unusual anti-trope film.

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.
