Episode 41: William Friedkin

The great Phil Nobile Jr returns to talk with us about the legendary (and often controversial) director William Friedkin. Although we do touch upon his more renowned 70s era favorites, the two films we focus on are the controversial CRUISING as well as the mid-80s action crime drama TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA.  In addition, Jim digests the rather subpar Stephen King adaptation THINNER, Phil talks about a private 35MM screening he had of COCKFIGHTER, and Patrick ventured out the theater to see the newly released PARANORMAN.

In a couple weeks we will be talking with Troy Anderson about our first animated filmmaker, Ralph Bakshi!  Please be sure to leave us a voicemail to play on the show at 224-366-9528. If you’re a movie blogger/podcaster and would like a guest spot on the show to talk about a filmmaker whose work you admire. Thanks again for listening and be sure to check out our updated upcoming schedule in the sidebar to see which directors we’ll be talking about soon!
