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.

Dune Night in Soho

Two big new releases from two big directors mean we have two big new reviews on this episode of Footcandle Films. We begin with Denis Villeneuve’s take on the classic sci-fi epic DUNE and follow that with genre-hopping Edgar Wright’s new LAST NIGHT IN SOHO. Alan helms the news segment having scoured the internet for items of interest before both hosts share their film recommendations to close out the episode.

Recommendations from our hosts in this episode: “The Last Duel”, “Dark Phoenix”

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!)
