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.

Wakanda Breaking Weird

BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER has hit cineplexes nationwide. Our hosts share their thoughts and then opt for two additional reviews due to the dearth of silver-screen news they were able to find online. Fear not – we’ll try and dig up some news for our next installment. Instead, we discuss the indie dramatic thriller BREAKING starring John Boyega and the well..weird biopic spoof WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY. Closing out the episode each host recommends a film to check out for the first time or revisit.

Recommendations from our hosts in this episode: “All Quiet on the Western Front (2022)”, “Sleepy Hollow”

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!)
