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.

Turning Red Windfall

“Turning Red” is out now on Disney+. Alan & Chris share their thoughts on this latest animation effort by Pixar as well as the new Netflix thriller “Windfall” starring Jason Segel, Jesse Plemons, and Lily Collins. After the reviews, the hosts sample some trailers of upcoming films in our Trailer Tapas section and give a recommendation of a film (or a streaming TV show in Alan’s case) you might want to see.

Recommendations from Alan and Chris in this episode: “X” , “Severance”

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!)
