Luca In The Heights
We’ve got reviews of the film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s IN THE HEIGHTS & Pixar’s latest LUCA to kick off this episode. The hosts follow up the review segment with a deluge of movie news (hooray…the movie-making machine is getting cranked up again after the pandemic) and suggestions of movies you might want to watch or rewatch.
Alan Jackson is the co-founder of the Footcandle Film Society and resides in Hickory, NC. He enjoys a wide variety of films – but mainly those of Martin Scorsese, his all-time favorite Director. Despite liking smaller, independent films, Alan also likes films with giant monsters or where animals talk. Alan also thinks Citizen Kane deserves every bit of credit it ever gets.
Chris Frye, the other co-founder of Footcandle Film Society, is a fan of directors such as Stanley Kubrick, Terry Gilliam, and David Gordon Green. He lives in Newton, NC, and has always been a movie buff. His favorite actors range from Steve Coogan to Christoph Waltz to Jeff Bridges. You may be surprised to know he has never seen Dirty Dancing or Pretty in Pink (gasp!)
