Episode 39: Richard Lester

This week Director’s Club has film buff and hobbyist filmmaker Greg David talking with Patrick about highly influential American-turned-Brit director Richard Lester. The films we focus on capture the many sides of this unique director, from the French new-wave inspired pure joy of A Hard Day’s Night (where the template for the modern music video was born) to the unexpectedly touching and heartfelt Robin and Marian, which simultaneously tells a rousing adventure story while capturing deep feelings of loss and love. In addition, we talk about Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut and some low-budget superhero sequel that a guy named Chris Nolan did. Maybe you heard of it, it came out recently.

Next episode we discuss the wit and bile captured in the films of Noah Baumbach with pop culture writer/blogger Dan Solomon. If you liked the show, why not leave us a voicemail at 224-366-9528?
