Seeing and Believing 248 | Josh Trank’s Capone
Fresh off their “2020 auteurs” series, Wade and Kevin get back to basics with a review of a freshly released film: Josh Trank’s biopic of Al Capone. Trank returns to small-budget indie filmmaking by writing, editing, and directing this unconventional examination of the last year of the infamous gangster’s life. Faced with his own physical and psychological deterioration, Capone has to deal with the consequences of his immoral past and his paranoia-laced present, and the audience is along for the ride.
