The Man in the White Suit

A sixth Mission: Impossible provides the only opportunity needed to inaugurate Moviebrat cinemaestro Brian De Palma into The Electronic Labyrinth as Luke and Fletcher discuss the entire franchise, from its beginnings in the big budget boom of ’90s television adaptations to a latest installment which enthralls and infuriates equally. In a bumper issue, there’s time also to discuss that other hardy spy perennial (yes, you guessed it, Johnny English), and the state of blockbuster franchises in general. At almost two hours, we’d wondered whether to artificially Kill Bill this sucker into a two-parter after the fact, but when we heard Empire magazine was devoting two three-hour podcasts to Chris McQuarrie, we thought, screw it. Enjoy!
