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!
