    We’re kicking off a month of Patreon requests with a request from Dallas Novell; 1982’s TV movie The Executioner's Song. Based on a book by Norman Mailer with a screenplay by Mailer -- and maybe Tracy Keenan Wynn -- it’s the story of the last nine months in the life of Gary Gilmore which stars Tommy Lee Jones as Gilmore and Rosanna Arquette as his girlfriend, Nicole Baker.

    Made for TV Mayhem's Amanda Reyes and Wake Up Heavy's Mark Begley join Mike to discuss the film, capital punishment, and more while director Lawrence Schiller talks about how The Executioner's Song came about.

Indispensable

This is a great podcast for cineastes, movie nerds, and anyone who loves deep, deep dives into films. Intelligent without descending too often into academic analysis, this is a down-to-earth podcast about film. The effort that goes into each episode is impressive.

…except when the panel of commentators go on about films they “hate” and talk about how theycould have been done better if they made the film. News flash: no one cares.

The best film podcast

If you are a fan of film, you owe it to yourself to listen to the Projection Booth. Mike’s guests are entertaining and knowledgeable, and the interviews he conducts provide a fascinating glimpse into how films are made. He offers a broad range of films, from mainstream to art house and obscure, which is something that many other film-related podcasts do not.

The Hunger

I am very sorry but The Hunger is such a weak film to speak of contemporary vampire mythology. Jarmusch’s “Only Lovers Left Alive” is much more powerful, beautiful and impactful. And it certainly does not look like a effing video.
