We finally managed to get Eric Kohn on the podcast after food poisoning (mine) and poor planning kept him off. And what great timing as he’s curated the third annual Heeb Film Festival this weekend at 92nd St. Y’s new location in Tribeca. Best of all, it starts Saturday with a screening of Silver Jew, directed by Michael Tully, who’ll attend a Q&A afterwards. But before all that, he’s here!
Shocking, I know!
Eric discusses the films playing at Heeb and Michael talks a bit about Silver Jew (which is on DVD, too). We also chat about Revolutionary Road expectations, Gran Torino, and I use my demonic powers to predict the death of a certain director after my success with Paul Newman.
Till then, this is Episode 9, “The Heeb Film Festival Podcast, or Get Off My Ass, Death!” If you’re in the NYC area this weekend, go to the Heeb Film Fest! Purchase your tickets here. And if you happen to see Vadim or myself at the bar, buy us a drink!
(Also, Onion, you totally have yet to hire me for Decider. How lame will it be when the guy you picked over me is referencing these podcasts? Super lame. And go to the Heeb Film Fest! And we love Kino International! Forever ever!) John Lichman
