Following Films Podcast: Cristina Rodlo and Marc Menchaca on No One Gets Out Alive

  Today I'm joined by Cristina Rodlo and Marc Menchaca to discuss their top ten Netflix thriller No One Gets Out Alive. Ambar (Cristina Rodlo) is embarking on her American Dream after years spent dutifully tending to her terminally ill mother in Mexico. She arrives in Cleveland illegally, with very little money and unsuitable clothing for what’s expected to be the coldest winter on record. After finding cash-in-hand work at a local garment factory, she rents the cheapest room available from Red (Marc Menchaca) in a near derelict boarding house. Kept awake by the other tenants’ sobbing, disturbing nightmares and strange unearthly noises echoing from the basement, Ambar begins to wonder exactly who - or what - lives inside the house with them. Soon it becomes clear that Ambar has walked into a trap, one where she will soon be introduced to the evil that has been lurking in the basement. Ambar must fight to escape her living nightmare, but in a house where no one listens to the scream

NETFLIX'S COCAINE COWBOYS - August 4

Fifteen years after the release of his cult classic film comes director Billy Corben’s Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami, a six-part saga on the South Florida traffickers indicted in one of the largest drug cases in U.S. history. Alleged to be the chief U.S. distributors for two of Colombia’s biggest cartels, Cuban exiles Augusto “Willy” Falcon and Salvador “Sal” Magluta were accused of smuggling over 75 tons of cocaine into the U.S. in the 1980s. The high school friends built a reputed $2 billion empire that made Willy and Sal, aka “Los Muchachos,” two of Miami’s biggest celebrities. While law enforcement plotted their takedown, the world champion powerboat racers managed to skillfully outrun and outmaneuver prosecution for decades before the chase finally came to an end. Featuring colorful interviews with those closest to them, their defense team, and the Feds tasked with taking them down, the series paints a vivid portrait of the last of Miami’s “cocaine cowboys.”    For more inf

Netflix Original Documentary PRAY AWAY, Executive Produced by Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum, Releasing Globally August 3rd

  In the 1970s, five men struggling with being gay in their Evangelical church started a Bible study to help each other leave the "homosexual lifestyle." They quickly received over 25,000 letters from people asking for help and formalized as Exodus International, the largest and most controversial conversion therapy organization in the world. But leaders struggled with a secret: their own “same-sex attractions” never went away. After years as Christian superstars in the religious right, many of these men and women have come out as LGBTQ, disavowing the very movement they helped start. Focusing on the dramatic journeys of former conversion therapy leaders, current members, and a survivor, PRAY AWAY chronicles the “ex gay" movement’s rise to power, persistent influence, and the profound harm it causes. Launching Globally on Netflix August 3rd

Sophia Nahli Allison Interview on her Oscar-nominated film A LOVE SONG FOR LATASHA

Today I chat with Sophia Nahli Allison about her Oscar nominated short documentary film A LOVE SONG FOR LATASHA. The film is currently streaming on Netflix. A reimagined narrative of Latasha Harlins through intimate memories shared by her cousin and best friend. The injustice surrounding the shooting death of 15-year-old Latasha Harlins at a South Central Los Angeles store became a flashpoint for the city’s 1992 civil uprising.  As the Black community expressed its profound pain in the streets, Latasha’s friends and family privately mourned the loss of a vibrant child whose full story was never in the headlines. Three decades later, director Sophia Nahli Allison’s A LOVE SONG FOR LATASHA removes Latasha from the context of her death and rebuilds an archive of a promising life lost. Oral history and memories from Latasha’s best friend and cousin converge in a dreamlike portrait that shows the impact one brief but brilliant life can have. Director Sophia Nahli Allison grew up in South Ce

Jonny Zeller on Deadly Illusions

  Directing large-scale projects for clients as diverse as Toyota and Google, Anheuser Busch, Panasonic, and a foray into feature filmmaking, Jonny Zeller’s work isn’t best described within the confines of one specific genre.

His commercial and branded work features A-list talent and has gone on to secure various awards including American Advertising Awards, Webby, Reel Screen, and Hermes Award honors.

How Big is Netflix? Does Size Really Matter?

How big is Netflix? It can seem incredibly small when you look through the same 15-20 titles that the all powerful Netflix algorithm constantly spits up at you. But it turns out there is far more than I thought. The folks over at reviews.org did some deep diving and found out exactly how much content we are paying for. According to their research if you were to attempt to "finish" Netflix, it would take you approximately four years, two months, and eight days to watch all of their available content. If this is true, and I believe their methodology was sound, Netflix is doing a shit job of showing me stuff beyond my perceived narrow interests. Highlights from the article: If you were streaming 24/7, it would take 4 years 2 months, and 8 days to watch everything on Netflix. Watching all of Netflix would equal 256 roundtrips to the moon. The average user only watches 2% of the Netflix library in a year. Assuming no titles were added or removed and you watch

Trailer for Netflix's FEAR CITY: NEW YORK VS. THE MAFIA

Throughout the 1970s and ’80s, the “Five Families” of the New York mafia—Bonanno, Colombo, Gambino, Genovese and Luccese—held a powerful, and seemingly insurmountable, grip on the city. In this three-part docuseries from RAW (Don’t F**K With Cats) and Brillstein Entertainment, award-winning documentarian Sam Hobkinson details the incredible story of the history-making organized crime investigation and prosecution case brought against New York’s most formidable mob bosses. Through interviews with dozens of law enforcement officials, ex-mafia associates and others, FEAR CITY: NEW YORK vs. THE MAFIA sheds light on how the mafia’s control of unions, high-rise construction and other industries netted billions for organized crime. Previously unheard surveillance recordings, news footage and archival material alongside new interviews and reenactments paint a shocking and captivating portrait of this “Golden Era of the Mob.” FEAR CITY will premier on Netflix Wednesday, July 22nd
