Lord of the Riverdance (Michael Flatley's Blackbird)

THIS WEEK: Blackbird (2018... or maybe 2022 depending on who you ask)

In the 90s Michael Flatley donned his best pleather pants and seductive plunging neckline shirt so he could set the dancing world (and your mother's heart) on fire. But once the traditional Irish music fades and you hang up your river dancin' shoes, what is the lord of the dance to do? There's only one option: dump millions of dollars into a feature-length spy thriller. And you know it's written, directed, produced by and starring Michael Flatley, because we love and respect true auteurs at Optimism Vaccine.
