Staff Pick of the Day
Directed by Robert Downey, Sr.
Robert Downey Sr. made a mockery of the advertising world, boardroom culture, racial bias and the United States presidency with one fell swoop in Putney Swope. When a black man takes over an ad firm, he rebuilds the entire enterprise in his image, becoming a superstar in the process. We're treated to snippets of the advertisements as the company gradually reverts to its previous dysfunctional state. (Available on FilmStruck)
