Episode 92 - Alex Ross Perry

It wasn't easy filling an entire episode with a filmmaker whom we've only gotten to see two movies from thus far.  But that didn't stop my enthusiasm to talk about Alex Ross Perry with someone that is light years smarter than I was at his age.  18-year-old filmmaker Ben Medina joins me to talk Perry. We also delve into the films and directors that have inspired Ben, what movies mean to him, as well as discuss some recent entries into the contemporary indie film genre such WHILE WE'RE YOUNG (very appropriate), THE OVERNIGHT, IT FOLLOWS, and a whole lot more throughout the episode. The what we watched segment has been bypassed due to the geyser of conversation we shared about film and filmmaking, and what it means to us.  Of course, the 2nd half focuses on both THE COLOR WHEEL and LISTEN UP PHILIP as well.  Thanks as always for listening, and stay tuned for another sequel episode coming in August - Jim
