Masters of Cinema Cast – Episode 46 – The Offence

offence header

Nothing like a comedy to chase away those winter blues….which is why under no circumstances watch The Offence as it will chill you to your very soul.

James Marsh joins us for a trip to Depressionville.

From the Masters of Cinema:

Released only one year before the director’s Serpico and almost a decade before Prince of the City, The Offence offers an early Lumetian investigation into the psyche of a policeman under duress, and the potential for corruption within a high-stakes profession.
