Episode 22: Errol Morris

Film Junk Podcast co-host and filmmaker Jay Cheel joins us for an in-depth discussion on the remarkable and innovative documentarian Errol Morris.  We first interview Jay about his excellent feature-length documentary debut, BEAUTY DAY.  In addition, we forgo the What We Watched segment to discuss the documentary genre as a whole and rundown a list of favorites.  The main focus of the show is dedicated to Errol Morris’ low-key debut GATES OF HEAVEN as well as his more stylish take on eccentric obsessives with FAST CHEAP & OUT OF CONTROL.  We elaborate more on a few other Morris films as well.  Be sure to visit Jay’s excellent website that covers this genre in its entirety, over at The Documentary Blog.
