French Eternal Tammy Faye Dispatch
The Hollywood release floodgates are truly open as we near the end of 2021. For that reason, our hosts opted for not the usual two but three reviews of recent films on this episode that include “Eternals”, “The French Dispatch”, and “The Eyes of Tammy Faye”. Following the reviews, Alan & Chris each share some interesting announcements in the world of cinema. Last but not least the episode concludes with recommendations of films to check out.
Recommendations from our hosts in this episode: “The Harder They Fall”, “Finch”
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!)
