You may not know the name of today's guest but hopefully you are aware of the subject of his new documentary, ADRIENNE. This is one of the best films of 2021. Personally, the radiant Adrienne Shelly was one of my favorite actresses ever since discovering her in the early 90s through the work of Hal Hartley. Then she went on to write and direct one …
 
Having made three films as a director, Sarah Polley has become one of my favorite storytellers. All of her work has reflected an experience I’ve had to one degree or another and I’ve been a fan of hers going all the way back to her roles in films like GO and THE SWEET HEREAFTER. Joining me for an insightful discussion on her extraordinary three mov…
 
Director's Club is proud to present a special episode hosted by regular contributor Bill Ackerman of the Supporting Characters podcast. He is joined by filmmaker and film programmer Chris O'Neill to talk about the latest film, Zeros and Ones from the last director we covered on the show, Abel Ferrara. In addition, there is an interview with the dir…
 
The Chicago Critics Film Association throws an annual film fest, giving the public a chance to see buzzed-about unreleased films that deserve to be seen on the big screen. This year's lineup includes a 40th anniversary 35mm midnight screening of Michael Mann's THIEF in addition to several titles that critics are raving about including Maggie Gyllen…
 
One of the best guests you can have on any movie podcast would be Supporting Characters host Bill Ackerman, who returns for a yearly visit, this time to talk about the down & dirty gritty auteur Abel Ferrara. Usually for October, we try our best to talk about a horror director and though Ferrara isn't classified as one, you can certainly look at hi…
 
Inspired by one of my favorite podcasts, Screen Drafts, I decided to revise their general format for just this episode in which Movie Madness host Erik Childress and I collaborated on what we feel are the top ten Richard Donner movies. Yes, this is subjective and we consider these to be personal favorites overall but there were a couple of twists a…
 
I wasn't sure what to say or write about today or even what happened 20 years ago. So I just got out a microphone and put out my thoughts through this quick bonus episode in addition to including a previously recorded review of 25TH HOUR that Patrick and I once shared for the Spike Lee podcast. Hopefully you are reflecting, remembering and holding …
 
Jim here! I'm back as your monthly host! And since this era of filmmaking isn't necessarily my area of expertise, of course I had to recruit a "magnificent" returning guest by the name of Sergio Mims who of course adores the Western genre and even came up with the roster of underseen titles by the great John Sturges. You may know him as the directo…
 
Nearly ten years ago, Jim and Patrick tried doing an episode on this beloved Hong Kong filmmaker but technology wasn't entirely cooperative back then. It was still released, but incomplete. Now many episodes later, Patrick returns sans Jim to try again with some great help as always from reliable, returning guest and podcaster extraordinare Bill Ac…
 
No, the old format didn't go away. This is just something special. If you want more bonus content like this, please join the Director's Club Patreon for only $5/month. You'll help support this show, Voices + Visions and the Now Playing Network. In the introduction, I establish a new monthly offering for those wanting more shorter content in the fut…
 
Great Scott! Patrick returns to host a different approach to an episode in which he and returning guest Andrew James run down an entire filmography. So no more what we watched segment or parody songs just three and a half hours focused on action director Tony Scott starting at the beginning of his career all the way to the end. Follow along with th…
 
Jim is taking the summer off but Patrick is back as your host for the next three official episodes of the show! First up is the renowned French director Louis Malle who has had a lot of varied work throughout his career, several of which are brought up during the episode but the main focus is on Elevator To The Gallows along with Vanya On 42nd Stre…
 
I’ve done a lot of podcasts in my time but this one might be the craziest I’ve ever been a part of. Thanks to my dear friend Patrick Ripoll, this is one of those birthday gifts that I’ll cherish forever. What Patrick did was invent 43 movie and music-related games for my 43rd birthday and we turned them into 43 segments. Not to mention the 10 hours…
 
One of the year's most incredibly fun horror movies is coming out this weekend and it'll be in theaters as well as VOD on May 21st. Joining me for this bonus episode, writer/director Simon Barrett of Seance joins me today to talk about his experiences making the film as well as previous collaborations with Adam Wingard making two of my favorites, Y…
 
80% of the crew for Chantal Akerman’s Jeanne Dielman were women. For this episode, I needed the perspective and insights from two of the smartest women I know. Returning guest Kate Blair and newcomer Sharon Gissy join me to discuss this remarkable (and oftentimes challenging) Belgian director that completely changed European cinema back in the mid-…
 
After a slew of bonus episodes, we return to our regularly scheduled program all the way up until the summer. Film Junk’s very own Sean Dwyer and Frank Knezic return to the show for an energetic conversation about a fascinating filmmaker by the name of David O’Russell. No stranger to controversy but also one of the better directors of screwball-sty…
 
So you might remember him as Arnie from Christine and that's where I first became aware of the terrific talent of one writer/director/actor extraordinaire Keith Gordon. He's been on Voices + Visions / Director's Club a few times now, thus beginning a yearly tradition where we check in and take the opportunity to nerd out about cinema of years past.…
 
What started back six years ago with 1985 continues. This time it’s one entire episode instead of split into two: all six hours plus of an annual tradition co-starring yours truly, Collin Souter and Erik Childress as we run down nearly every film that came out thirty years ago. This time it’s all about 1991! If you’re a fan of nostalgia, sound clip…
 
It's been a long while since I was contacted about possible interviews, probably because there has been a lot going in the world or more than likely, I've been too busy to reply every single one. Well here are two I simply did not want to pass up because I thoroughly enjoyed the films we discuss. First up, as you heard during Episode 185, I sang th…
 
Chicago filmmaker and friend Sean Pierce returns to the podcast to discuss a Swedish director unlike any other. His choice was Roy Andersson and after seeing the majority of his work, I now understand why there is so much acclaim. It’s pretty much nothing but praise all-around particularly for a film that he made early in his career which will also…
 
Episode 184 (technically episode 276 if you count bonus episodes) consists of something special - something we’ve never done before in the history of this show. A collaborative top ten list curated by the two individuals that started this show a decade ago. Normally, we fight and bicker but there’s just a little bit of that this time. Patrick Ripol…
 
For the first 10th anniversary special of Director’s Club, you get 6 hours and 45 minutes of me and Bill Ackerman talking about our 50 favorite films of all time. Granted, we did end up spending a little time before that revealing our favorites from 2020 as well, but for the most part you get to learn about what each of us think are all-timers when…
 
BE SURE TO LISTEN TO THE VERY END FOR A SURPRISE CAMEO! For the last official episode of 2020, I brought on two very special guests from one of my new favorite podcasts, Screen Drafts to talk about one of my favorite writer/directors, James L. Brooks. The great Clay Keller and Ryan Marker join me to discuss his entire filmography since it’s relativ…
 
After being inspired by Patrick’s foray into commentary tracks with his great show as well as Mike White of The Projection Booth’s version of this on the new Arrow Blu-Ray, I decided it was time to give this a try with a little help from a friend. Erik Childress (of Movie Madness) joins me to talk about one of the great science fiction films of the…
 
In contrast to the last episode, this time we cover the work of someone more recent and with a much smaller filmography. Since all four films touch upon similar themes, culminating in what's now considered a masterpiece, we chronologically cover the work of French filmmaker Celine Sciamma starting with Water Lillies and ending with Portrait of a La…
