Episode 119: Peter Bogdanovich

As of mid-January 2017, I will no longer be the host of Director's Club on a full-time basis. Episode 121 (The Best of 2016) will be my last official episode as the predominant voice you hear on the show. While some of you may frown at that change, I encourage you to listen to my reasons during the introduction as well as learn who the new host will be and why I decided to move forward. Reminder: I am not disappearing completely.  After a lengthy monologue about the changes to come including the ridiculous election results, I happily have a conversation with one of my favorite guests and friends, Supporting Characters' very own Bill Ackerman.

Not only will Bill be my guest for Episode 121, he joins me today to discuss the life and films of a fascinating figure by the name of Peter Bogdanovich. We talk about his most renowned work such as THE LAST PICTURE SHOW & PAPER MOON, but we also touch upon overlooked gems like TARGETS, THEY ALL LAUGHED & SAINT JACK. There's a review for all of his films overall. Please listen to the entire episode this time around, it would be greatly appreciated. And I can't thank Bill enough once again for another wonderful conversation and education about one of cinema's greats!  For some reason, we forgot to give our top three lists!
