Charm City Kings director Angel Manuel Sototalks about being a cinephile and bringing a balance of neorealism/verite filmmaking with cinematic storytelling.

On the latest episode of CinemAddicts, Anderson Cowan really loved The Devil All The Time, a Netflix feature that he describes as a “sweeping epic.” Greg Srisavasdi’s big recommendation is writer-director Haroula Rose’s Once Upon A River, which marks Kenadi DeLaCerna’s acting debut. Films previewed on the episode include The Planters, The Projectionist and The Wolf Of Sleepy Hollow. Plus, Greg finally sees The Lighthouse and Anderson also recommends “Cuties.” Our bonus Patreon episode in October will have us review two films from 1973!
Here is my interview with Chris Messina and Amy Seimetz, co-stars of the thriller The Secrets We Keep.

Seimetz talks about director Barbara Loden (“Wanda”) in the brief chat, plus Messina discusses working w/ Seimetz on “She Dies Tomorrow.”
