DWT: Drinking While Talking #6: Gateway Movies

This episode, hosts Jill Blake and Wade Sheeler discuss titles that can charm even the grumpiest, reluctant friend or family member to dip their toe into the world of classic films. We all know someone who rolls their eyes at the mention of Black and white, old movies. We also know that once these cynics just try a good classic movie, they’ll get bit by the bug and try some more. Jill and Wade ditch the usual suspects and instead pick great films that are undeniably lovable, without the pretension and posturing that so many academics are guilty of when discussing amazing movies.

Just The Discs – Episode 112 – David Lynch on Criterion

On this very special episode of the show, Brian invited his friends and previous guests Stephanie Crawford and Bill Ackerman to discuss anything they like without him – and they chose David Lynch as their topic. The recent Blu-ray release of BLUE VELVET from Criterion inspired a wonderful conversation about how both Stephanie and Bill found their way to the company itself and how they came to be Lynch devotees. They touch on all his films thus far that have been released on Blu-ray by Criterion and it is a delightful chat. Also included is a short interview that Bill did with Criterion producer Susan Arosteguy, who has worked on all the David Lynch releases they’ve done as well as the John Waters discs too. Enjoy!
