Judges on Film

Ninth Circuit movie critics review the greatest legal films of all-time

Going to the movies has become an American pastime. Whether we’re clinging to our seats during a sci-fi thriller or holding back tears while watching a heart-wrenching drama, movies capture our attention and shape the way we see life. So how realistic are legally themed movies and how have they colored the way society perceives the legal system? Tune in to this week’s podcast to find out as Judge Lauten sits down with two of his colleagues, Circuit Judges Bob Egan and Leticia Marques, to review some of the most popular legal movies of our day. They discuss their favorite scenes and candidly share with listeners how movies have impacted them.

This podcast was originally broadcast "Live" on Facebook and is the Circuit's first video podcast. Part 2 of Judges on Film will appear later in Season 2 and will include another Facebook "Live" broadcast, but this time in 360 degrees.
