This week on CinemaJaw, in honor of the new Edward Norton vehicle, Motherless Brooklyn, we don our deerhunter caps and polish ye olde magnifying glass. Time to hunt for the clues and follow our noses to the answers. We leave no stone unturned, no witness unquestioned. We track down all the leads and bring you our Top 5 Movie Detectives!

Joing us is a man who already knows whodunnit. Marking his third appearance on the ‘Jaw, we welcome back Producer extrordinaire, Neal Edlestein. In case you don’t remember Neal has produced such films as The Straight Story and Mulholland Drive with David Lynch, not to mention The Ring. Most recently he is behind the producers desk on the Netflix film starring Sam Worthington entitled Fractured. Neal also happens to have a deep love for noir and detective movies. A perfect guest for the topic!

So let’s collect the evidence, round up our suspects and listen to the podcast!
