What do we know about diamonds?  Not much but we know that we love to review a Guy Ritchie film.  Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew: Ian, Ethan, and Georgia, as we're bouncing between New York and London in search of a diamond the size of a fist while dodging bullets and any man who keeps a pig farm. All bets are off in our 144th episode as we discuss:

  • What exactly is a circular narrative and how does Snatch present itself as one
  • How did Brad Pitt manage to get himself in this film?
  • Why did Vinnie Jones miss a key scene and why didn't we notice
  • Who was the first choice for Brick Top (you're not going to believe this)
  • Why was the title almost changed for the US market
  • We talk about North America's ignorance to the traveler community and what that may have meant to the film's success
  • Has Jason Statham ever stopped playing Turkish?
  • Ian tries to remember where Dennis Farina is from
  • Which member of the cast had to be recast after the original actor ended up turning violent?
  • Is this Guy Ritchie's Best Film?
  • Whether or not Snatch is the Best Film Ever
