Footcandle Films

Hosted ByChris Frye & Alan Jackson

Do you like listening to people talk about films?  What about those films that may not show up at the local multiplex but are instead showing at the smaller specialty theater across town?  Then "Footcandle Films" may be the show for you.

The Sparks Brothers Werewolves Within

In this episode of Footcandle Films, discussions of the indie horror-comedy “Werewolves Within” and director Edgar Wright’s first foray into documentary filmmaking “The Sparks Brothers” comprise the review portion of this episode followed by a healthy dose of silver screen news items. Last but not least each host offers a suggestion of a movie they’ve recently caught up with that you might enjoy.

Recommendations from the hosts in this episode: “Summer of Soul (…or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)”, “Bonfire of the Vanities”

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!)
