Film Frak: The Podcast#26: SORRY TO BOTHER YOU

Welcome to Film Frak Podcast 26. Fear not Frak listeners, after a month’s hiatus we are back and all charged up for some serious movie talk with episode 26. One of us also found the time to perfect making that instantly iconic clicking noise that ties in with one of this month’s entries. (You will have to listen to the show to find out which one.)

Since you last tuned in we’ve managed to check off 27 titles from the 2018 watch lists. Some of which we would just rather not talk about so we grabbed some piano wire and went for the jugular leaving the top 10 cinema releases that left an impression in the month of July.

What’s remains is a genre hopping concocti...

Film Frak Podcast Interview Special: The First Thing We Do…Starring Bertram Gibbs

Author Bertram Gibbs writes the kind of character driven pulp crime fiction that harkens back to the old masters while maintaining a distinct contemporary voice all its own. A voice that gives Film Frak its very first exclusive with an impromptu announcement about Mr Gibbs latest creation.

A fellow cinephile and lover of all things story we start our interview talking about Bert’s latest novel, THE FIRST THING WE DO…. It isn’t long though before the inevitable happens as it always does when a pair of film obsessed junkies first meet, we go off topic and talk movies...

Film Frak Podcast Interview Special: Memoir of a Nobody starring Steve Bluestein

Getting to know actor, stand-up comedian, screenwriter and author Steve Bluestein made for a witty, personal back and forth. Having worked at every level of the entertainment industry for over 4 decades Bluestein has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and a seemingly encyclopedic stream of anecdotes and lessons by doing.

As an actor he appeared in one of Film Frak Adam’s staple comedies before he was old enough to know better, the cult abomination THEY CALL ME BRUCE…which was all that was needed to jump at the opportunity of this interview...

Won’t You Be My Neighbor 

Director: Morgan Neville

Starring: Fred Rogers, Joanne Rogers, Betty Aberlin, Francois Clemmons, David Newell

A review by Jon Caron

Won’t You Be My Neighbor affected me far more than any other film I can think of in recent years. It has stirred a lot of memories and feelings inside of me that I have either chosen to put aside or suppress entirely. This review is going to get personal. I never get personal. Some of the closest people to me only know vague details of my upbringing, it’s something that while I acknowledge had a substantial part in forming who I am as a person, I choose not to dwell on or use it as either a crutch or some kind of ‘I overcame’ type story. It’s just my life...

Film Frak Podcast Interview Special: The Jaws 43rd Anniversary Starring Carl Gottlieb

This week marks the 43rd anniversary of JAWS and to celebrate I had the privilege of chatting to the films screenwriter Carl Gottlieb.

This is one of those interviews I’ve dreamed about all my life. To chat with the man who had a major hand in scarring my childhood with a deep seeded fear of the oceans apex predator by adapting Peter Benchley’s novel JAWS into a screenplay. It’s safe to say that few writers have had such a powerful effect in influencing my reality as Carl Gottlieb.

THE JAWS LOG was a revelation...

Grease and Wargames Film Frak Podcast Special: Starring Eddie Deezen

In honor of the 40th anniversary of GREASE, Film Frak is pleased to welcome Mr. Eddie Deezen to the show.

Eddie’s Deezen has had an extensive career. His personality dominates the frame anytime he is on camera. He singlehandedly defined the iconic onscreen persona of the “nerd” and was also the first to play what we now call a “computer geek”. His contribution to the history of cinema is easy to overlook but impossible to ignore once witnessed.

Some actors are just engrained on your psyche no matter how big or small the role. Eddie Deezen as Eugene in GREASE and as Malvin in WARGAMES is that type of actor...
