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.

Power of the Gucci West Side Story Dog

What type of film are you looking to see? A bigger-than-life, based on a real-life story of murder and betrayal? How about a slow burn western with a twist? Maybe you’re more of a fan of big-screen musicals? Our hosts do their best to help educate you on how best to spend your viewing time with reviews of HOUSE OF GUCCI, POWER OF THE DOG, & WEST SIDE STORY.

Recommendations from the hosts in this episode: “The Beatles: Get Back”, “Midnight Mass”

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!)
