THE GRAND GESTURE: Excalibur

For Valentine's Day we offer up the legendary gift of EXCALIBUR... but mainly Helen Mirren in all her black magic glory. To do so we welcome an Arthurian legend expert, Josh Dotson of SOBER CINEMA. And when we say "expert" we mean someone who isn't shocked by the criminal ways in which King Arthur is conceived in this John Boorman fever dream of a film. As we recover from that shock we try to chart the many grand gestures seen in this film: the drawing of a sword, the coming of the king, the search for the Grail, and Helen Mirren.
Pretty much just Helen Mirren.

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.
