THE GRAND GESTURE: Wonder Boys

For a movie on books we had to bring on a guest who has actually read one of those damn things. Megan from the podcast Oh No! Lit Class joins us to discuss the Curtis Hanson film adaptation of the Michael Chabon novel WONDER BOYS. Michael Douglas stars as the ultimate one hit wonder who can't move on, even when his lover who is married to his boss (!) tells him that she is pregnant and that it may be time for them to become Facebook official. Can the great Frances McDormand give this man, and the co-hosts of this "romcom" podcast the kick in the pants we all need? Find out pretty quickly by hitting that play button and then deal with crushing disappointment.

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.
