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.

The Bones and All Menu

With two films that center around food and eating did we miss an opportunity by not discussing them in a special Thanksgiving episode? Considering the movies reviewed are BONES & ALL and THE MENU it might be better that we waited until after the holiday. Also on this episode are bits of cinematic news and recommendations of films that might not be on your radar that you should check out.

Recommendations included in this episode: “NOT OKAY” , “SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET

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!)
