Are "The Dark Knight" and "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins" Really the SAME MOVIE? Find Out on CRIZZLE'S CRITICAL CONDITION!

On today's certain-to-divide installment of the Condition, I talk to Steven Boone, East Coast freelance critic, blogger and friend of Armond. And we get into it on the subject of classical filmmaking, something that Boone feels is sorely lacking in our contemporary film culture, and whether the most acclaimed movie and the most ghettofabulous waste of time aren't that different from one another these days. (Hence the titular question.)

We also discuss how one particular, Oscar-winning summer blockbuster from way back can soothe that savage beast known as — the American teenager. You can also download it here.

NEXT WEEK: A two-parter that still has my head buzzing.
