Denzel Washington has been nominated for an Oscar in every decade since the ‘80s. He’s been a consistently bankable star for just about that long, too. And yet, do we still take Denzel for granted? With Washington’s THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN remake currently in theaters, special guest W. Kamau Bell joins Adam and Josh to look back on the actor’s career with the Top 5 Denzel Washington Performances. Plus, the first pair of films in the latest Filmspotting Marathon, devoted to the career of the Spanish-born surrealist Luis Bunuel - his 1929 collaboration with Salvador Dali UN CHIEN ANDALOU and 1930's L'AGE D'OR.
This episode of Filmspotting is brought to you by Upstanders and The Girl on the Train.
