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.

Ten Rings & Nine Days

This episode of Footcandle Films kicks off with a review of the latest entry into the Marvel Comic Universe – SHANG CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS.  For the second review, the hosts discuss the indie sci-fi drama NINE DAYS which just so happens to also be one of their favorite films of the year. Alan & Chris then share some movie news before closing the show with recommendations of films you might want to seek out.

Recommendations from the hosts in this episode: “The Paper Tigers”, “Malignant”

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!)
