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.

Everything Apollo 10 1/2 All At Once

In this episode, one of our hosts gets to talk about his most anticipated film of 2022. Did his expectations sink his appreciation of EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE? Switching from a traditional theatrical release to a Netflix streaming release the fellows then discuss director Richard Linklater’s latest film APOLLO 10 1/2: A SPACE AGE CHILDHOOD. In our news section, we talk about premieres at this year’s Cannes Film Festival as well as an upcoming film based on a seasonal popup store. Closing out the show both hosts share a recommendation for a film you might want to watch from the comfort (assuming your couch doesn’t need to be replaced)of your own living room.

Recommendations from Alan and Chris in this episode: “Cameraperson” , “Cyrano”

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!)
