Welcome to the first official episode of the Cultural Conversation podcast.
In this episode, A. J. Black discusses the divisive and oft-maligned Mission Impossible II from 2000, directed by John Woo. He looks at links to Greek myth, the broader franchise and attempts to fashion Tom Cruise as a modern, American hero.
Featuring the voices of Clara Cook & Russell Hugo.
