Show Notes

Denzel Washington wins the Best Actor Oscar and Ethan Hawke earns a Supporting Actor nomination in the portrayal of what has to be the worst "first day on the new job" of all time. Directed by Antoine Fuqua and written by David Ayer, Training Day is a tense thriller that tells the story of a young cop (Hawke) eager to earn a spot on the LAPD narcotics squad and the corrupt detective (Washington) who manipulates him through a day filled with drug use, conspiracy and eventually, murder.
Blake, Kofi & Rich dive in - discussing the simultaneous appeal and revulsion of this film, the power of intimidation and how Training Day serves as an extreme but relevant cautionary tale for anyone eager to achieve their ambitions.
