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.

Multiverse of Massive Northman Talent Madness

Marvel has tinkered with its’ formula by hiring Sam Raimi to direct the latest MCU film. In honor of that, we decided to tinker with our show formula a bit and do a trio of reviews and skip the movie news. We kick things off with a review of DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS, chase that with the discussion of THE UNBEARABLE WEIGHT OF MASSIVE TALENT, and complete the triumvirate with talk of THE NORTHMAN. We return somewhat to normalcy and close the show with recommendations of films you should consider streaming from the comfort of your own living room.

Recommendations: “They Came Together”, “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!)
