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.

Don’t Worry Amsterdam Darling

Two films. Two huge casts. Two high-profile directors. Two behind-the-scenes sets of dramas. Alan and Chris bypass the sideline drama and discuss the ones that unfold onscreen in the new releases DON’T WORRY DARLING and AMSTERDAM. Once the reviews conclude, items of movie news are discussed and recommendations are given for films you can check out from the comfort of your own couch via a streaming service.

Recommendations from our hosts in this episode: “Predators (2010)” , “The Devil’s Backbone (2001)”

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!)
