I took some time off in July, but Film Festival Today still ran three reviews of mine. Here they are:
Hammer to Nail ran three new pieces of mine in the past two weeks: 2 reviews plus 1 interview, from AFI DOCS 2018, with director Kimberly Reed (about her Dark Money). Here are the links::
Our sixth (and final) episode of Season 3 (#306) is now up, and you can listen to it on iTunes, SoundCloud and/or Stitcher (and anywhere podcasts are found), as well as on our episodes page. This week, we look at Holocaust documentaries as we review The Last Laugh, and Bart interviews Ruth Zylberman of 209 rue Saint-Maur, Paris 10ème – The Neighbors. As always, you can find the episode on our “episodes” page, on iTunes, SoundCloud and Stitcher, and anywhere podcasts are generally available. Enjoy!
This episode concludes our third season. That makes 18 episodes so far: 3 seasons x 6 episodes each + 4 bonus episodes. Stay tuned for a few more bonus episodes, starting towards the end of August/beginning of September, with Season 4 to follow soon thereafter. Until then …
Our fifth episode of Season 3 (#305) is now up, and you can listen to it on iTunes, SoundCloud and/or Stitcher (and anywhere podcasts are found), as well as on our episodes page. This week, we cover documentary films that at first appear to be about a bunch of wildly different ideas but then manage to tie it all together under coherent and satisfying themes. We have a review of The King, followed by an interview between Bart and the director of Cuba and the Cameraman. Enjoy!
Hammer to Nail ran five pieces of mine in the last two weeks: 4 additional reviews plus 1 interview from the 2018 Annapolis Film Festival, with director Samuel D. Pollard (about two films he had playing there: ACORN and the Firestorm and Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me). Here are the links::
Our fourth episode of Season 3 (#304) is now up, and you can listen to it on iTunes, SoundCloud and/or Stitcher (and anywhere podcasts are found), as well as on our episodes page. In it, we review review Coming to My Senses, a film about how motocross athlete Aaron Baker struggles to overcome a severe spinal-cord injury, and interview the director and subject of Chi-Town, a movie about basketball star Keifer Sykes. Enjoy!
Our third episode of Season 3 (#303) is now up, and you can listen to it on iTunes, SoundCloud and/or Stitcher (and anywhere podcasts are found), as well as on our episodes page. In it, we review Filmworker, a fascinating portrait of director Stanley Kubrick’s long-suffering (and very loyal) helpmate Leon Vitali, and interview Sam Pollard, director of the equally interesting Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me. Enjoy!
Welcome to the fifth and final episode of the 2017-2018 season of Dragon Digital Media‘s Reel Talk with Christopher Llewellyn Reed. My guest this time was Chris Kaltenbach, arts and entertainment reporter for The Baltimore Sun. We discussed three recent films: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Leave No Trace and Won’t You Be My Neighbor? (in that order). Like what you see? Be sure to check out the first, second, third and fourth episodes of this current season, as well. We’ll be back in September to kick off a new, full six-episode season. See you then!
In Howard County, Maryland, you can watch the show on Channel 41 (if you’re a Verizon customer) or Channel 96 (if you’re a Comcast customer), and you can watch it online from anywhere. You can also still catch all six episodes from last year (first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth), plus all six from the previous year (first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth), as well as the six episodes from my first season with Reel Talk (Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5, Episode 6). Enjoy!
The fantastic Dragon Digital Media team did their usual superlative job putting this together, especially producer Karen Vadnais and director Danielle Maloney, as well as floor manager Anthony Hoos. Have fun this summer at the movies! Here’s hoping there are at least a few great films!
