The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy

The Fifth Element.

Some movies take a very long time to make it to the screen and director Luc Besson had this movie in his head since the age of sixteen, yet it would not make it to the big screen till he was thirty-eight.

In this episode of The 602 Club hosts Matthew Rushing and Christy Morris talk about The Fifth Element. We discuss finding the movie, a long time coming, mixing ideas, comic inspiration, costumes, creature design, the cast, why save life, the soundtrack, ratings and our recommendations.
