The Thursday Club

Ultimately, The Thursday Club is a portrait of a generation. The opening questions about a riot in 1967 lead to a tribute to the characters, and to the experiences they shared. When asked about his own feelings about these former enemies—the officers he faced on the street in 1967, filmmaker George Csicsery says, "For me, it's not a question of going from one side to the other. I find that I accummulate loyalties rather than shedding old ones for new ones. Working on this film has given me new respect, particularly for the individuals who opened up to tell me their stories. I owe them a great deal. Besides, there's no one better at spinning yarns than an old cop. And that's gold for any filmmaker."
