Three Thousand Years of Marcel
Director George Miller has crafted a tale of a djinn (played by Idris Elba) and a scholar (played by Tilda Swinton) facing off in a hotel room in THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING. Comedian Jenny Slate & director Dean Fleischer-Camp bring their YouTube stop motion creation to the big screen with MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON. Our hosts review both films and then share some silver screen news. To close out the show they share a joint recommendation of a film that just hit cinemas that you might want to check out.

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!)
