Cinematic for the People: NBR Awards/Krampus/Brooklyn/Trumbo

#057: NBR Awards/Krampus/Brooklyn/Trumbo

On this episode of Cinematic for the People, Ben sits down with Michael Denniston for an ultimately pointless conversation about an ultimately pointless group of film critics and their ultimately pointless set of awards winners which happens to be the first major kick off to an ultimately pointless season of shameless award giving. Then Ben and Chris break out the old aluminum Festivus pole for a review of the new christmas/horror film Krampus. Ben airs his grievances on the film while Chris celebrates it's feats of strength. This leads to another Festivus miracle when Ben and Clinton Cornwell convene for a review of the new period drama Brooklyn. Finally Ben is joined by Jeff Broitman for a review of Trumbo proving that the highs and lows of the Festivus season are all too real. Enjoy!

WHAT THE FEST!? Interview with Larry Fessenden on DEPRAVED

On this episode of the podcast, I had the chance to chat with genre legend Larry Fessenden. He was kind enough to carve out 20 minutes of his day to chat with me about his latest film DEPRAVED, the opening night selection for this year's WHAT THE FEST!? 
Shot on the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN,  writer-director Larry Fessenden’s brings his unique vision of the literary classic in DEPRAVED, set in modern Brooklyn. This meditative reimagining of the novel explores the crisis of masculinity and ideas about loneliness, memory and the subtle psychological shocks that shape us as individuals.
