Do you enjoy listening to people talk about films? What about those films that may not show up at the local multiplex but are instead showing at the smaller specialty theater across town? Then "Footcandle Films" may be the show for you. Each month, the hosts discuss and review one "smaller" film in-depth, discuss upcoming film news, and give recommendations on films that you may not be aware of, ones that you haven't remembered in a while, or ones that are worth your time checking out. And all the while, the conversation never gets too "high-brow" or pretentious. Just two guys who enjoy talking about movies. Your Hosts: Alan Jackson and Chris Frye, founders of the Footcandle Film Society.
Wolf of Snow Hollow Stealing Horses
Indie writer/director Jim Cummings is back with a new movie "The Wolf of Snow Hollow". Alan and Chris share their thoughts on this film as well as spend some time discussing the foreign flick "Out Stealing Horses" starring Stellan Skarsgard. With a lack of news stories about film to discuss Alan and Chris ponder the future of movie theaters before closing out the show with their recommendations of films you might want to consider adding to your queue.
Enola Holmes Antebellum
Millie Bobbie Brown of "Stranger Things" stars in her first major film role as the title character in "Enola Holmes". Alan & Chris review this straight to Netflix feature as well as the thriller "Antebellum" starring Janelle Monáe. In addition to the usual segments of Trailer Tapas & Sounds Like It Could Be Good??? the hosts also recap the winners of the 2020 Footcandle Film Festival that just wrapped up at the end of September.
I'm Thinking of Bill & Ted
2020 has been pretty strange. A third installment in the Bill & Ted series almost makes sense. Alan & Chris discuss the cinematic oddity as well as the new...well, yes odd - but in a completely different way - Charlie Kaufman film "I'm Thinking of Ending Things". For the trailer tapas section the hosts discuss the new "Dune" and "Freaky" trailers and then indulge in some extremely early Oscar prediction talk. As per the tried and true formula, they round out the episode with some film recommendations.
