Leon: The Houseplant
One of the most provocative hit movies of the 90s, Luc Besson's Leon introduced a young Natalie Portman to the world and helped reinvent Gary Oldman as one of the all-time great scenery-chewing bad guys.
In this week's podcast, we discuss traumatic childhood viewing experiences, sexual weirdness, stealth vegan propaganda and much more - plus the usual blend of drinking games, listener reactions and sequel pitches!
Beyond the Box Set is a movie podcast with a twist. Each week we take a notable standalone movie and compete to pitch sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.
