GRINGO, a dark comedy mixed with white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, explores the battle of survival for businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) when he finds himself crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal.
Interesting show with engaging guests and lively debate
Peter Bart and Peter Guber provide excellent commentary on the state of the entertainment industry ranging from topics like 'the consequences of films such as "The Matrix Reloaded"' on the industry as a whole and on the effect of product placement in movies like the James Bond series and other films.
From the very beginning, I have been taping all the half-hour episodes for future reference. I really like the kinds of guests they have on the show, from Sir Anthony Hopkins to Danny DeVito to Diane Lane and Samuel L. Jackson. As an aspiring filmmaker myself, I find the ideas talked about on the show to be invaluable and very engaging.
I look forward to many more episodes and especially guests. I hope they get someone like George Lucas or even Steven Spielberg. Now that would make for some interesting interviews, just like the one Spielberg had on Lipton's Actor's Studio show.
