Hey guys! Had to reload this episode because this feed actually had an interview with another director instead of Summertime director Carlos Lopez Estrada and Raul Herrera. Anyways, if you already listened to it last week, apologies!
It was a pleasure to interview DirectorCarlos López Estradaand spoken word artist/educatorRaul Herrera forSummertime. The ambitious feature centers on the lives of 25 young Los Angeles inhabitants who have their own dreams and ambitions. A sweeping and at times evocative look at these diverse and inspiring lives, Summertime is one of my favorite films of 2021.

We preview the month of August on this episode. Good news is that Anderson Cowan has a review of The Suicide Squad handy and Greg Srisavasdi (moving forward I will refer to myself in the third person) has already seen Annette. Anderson also discusses his love for the works of Neill Blomkamp (Elysium, Chappie) since his flick Demonic is just around the corner.
For this month’s Patreon, the CinemAddicts twosome are covering the year 1961. Anderson and Greg also get into a discussion on why watching Big Budget movies in an actual theater is the best way to go (Greg prefers his Chromebook or iPad!).
Here is my interview with Gangs of London director Xavier Gens (he directed episodes 6-8 of the first season). The series is co-created by Gareth Evans, the filmmaker behind The Raid: Redemption and Apostle.
During the interview, Gens talked about his directing approach to Gangs of London and collaborating with Evans on the series. Plus, he looks back on his own career (which includes the films Frontier(s), The Divide, and Cold Skin). Genre filmmaking is a big passion for Gens, as he cites The Thing (John Carpenter), Robocop (Paul Verhoeven), and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Tobe Hooper) as movies that have heavily influenced him.
