Following Films Podcast: SHE CAME TO ME Cinematographer and Friend of the Show Sam Levy

  Today I’m joined by Cinematographer and friend of the show Sam Levy. I had Sam on the show to discuss his work on his latest film SHE CAME TO ME. The film features Anne Hathaway, Peter Dinklage, and Marisa Tomei. The film is centered on a composer who is creatively blocked and unable to finish the score for his big comeback opera. At the behest of his wife, Patricia, formerly his therapist, he sets out in search of inspiration and finds much more than he bargained for. SHE CAME TO ME is currently playing in theaters everywhere and is worth your time. Make sure you check this one out. It was nice to leave a film (in October) feeling better than when I walked in. Sam is one of my favorite guests to have on the show and I’m always looking for an excuse to chat with him for an hour or so.  

Ep. 169 of War Machine vs. War Horse: Mistress America (Damsels in Distress vs. Lola Versus)

On this episode: Greta Gerwig's latest, MISTRESS AMERICA, has us talking about her influence in two prior starring roles in LOLA VERSUS and DAMSELS IN DISTRESS. In one, a breakup has her leaning on friends and in the other she seeks out people to help guide them to happiness. Britt from the pop culture blog Eclectic Pop guides us through The Greta Gerwig Effect. But first, an excerpt from a Following Films interview with Sam Levy, director of photography for MISTRESS AMERICA, about his work with writer/director Noah Baumbach.
