Looking Back at 'White Men Can't Jump'

As part of The Dissolve's Movie of the Week feature, film critic Noel Murray and I had a conversation about 1992's White Men Can't Jump. This weekly back-and-forth exchange is called Forum, and I loved getting a chance to do one with a guy I really like. In our conversation, we talk about the film's terrific opening, Ron Shelton's view on racial politics, the L.A. riots, the connection between sports and art, and where Sidney and Billy probably are today. A lot of fun, and I hope you enjoy.
