This week on Episode 217 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by The Fate of the Furious, we talked about our favorite car chases in film. As mentioned on the show, we did tackle this subject on Episode 14 – waaaaayyyyy back in the day – before Brendan’s tenure on the show, so it felt appropriate to revisit this list. From classics like Bullitt and The French Connection to recents like Mad Max: Fury Road and the Bourne franchise, car chases have been a staple for years. It was fun to discuss this topic once again and hopefully you enjoy our picks this week.
