This week on Flick City I interview Almost Paradise producer Dean Devlin (he also directed Geostorm and Bad Samaritan). He talks about his love for E.T. the Extra Terrestrial. My full interview with Devlin is up for our Patreon members. Plus if you want to support your local independent theater by watching Bacurau via a virtual screening, go to Kino Lorber’s site. I also discuss two films that are ust sees on The Criterion Channel: My Name Is Julia Ross and So Dark The Night.
Episode 6 features two films I highly recommended. One is a Maine set film noir (Blow The Man Down) and the other is a teen romance comedy (Banana Split) that is blessed with a solid ensemble and strong screenplay.
Blow The Man Down actresses Morgan Saylor shares her thoughts on Jim Jarmusch’s Night On Earth and co-star Sophie Lowe’s movie pick is Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet. Banana Split actress Addison Riecke’s favorite film is Fantastic Mr. Fox. My Q&A with Riecke, along with details on my latest Digital Code giveaway, is up on Deepest Dream.
