"The Lost King" had its world premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival, where it received positive reviews, and it is now being released in theaters in the U.S. by IFC Films. Part of the film's charm comes from its irresistible cast, but another part comes from the delightful screenplay, which is based on an incredible true story. Co-screenwriter Jeff Pope was nice enough to spend some time talking with us about his work on the film, working with co-screenwriter Steve Coogan, how director Stephen Frears brought the story to life, and more!

If you're listening to this podcast, the question of what's next is probably on your mind. Here's a helpful way to think about it. Some see life as a three-act play. Act One is birth through your twenties, Act Two is your 30s until age 60, which is often your most productive period professionally and for many raising a family. And then, there's a Third Act, which for many people presents a new blank canvas to explore new or long-deferred pursuits and make a difference in the lives of others. Josh Sapan is the author of The Third Act: Reinventing Your Next Chapter. The book profiles 63 people who are pursuing meaningful third acts. Some are names you'll know like Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Norman Lear. But most are people like you and I, and they are living inspiring stories that illustrate the wide range of opportunities for people to thrive and contribute in their third acts. Josh Sapan joins us from New York. (Three of the people profiled have visited with us on the podcast and you can find the links below). ___________________________ Bio Josh Sapan is the recently retired President and CEO of AMC Networks.

It also has many people who no one has never heard of. And there is, I think, something thematically consistent between those who are luminaries and those who are not, and I think that it is a few, a couple different things. One is curiosity. And I think a second thing is the ability somehow to actualize what is often resident in many people, which is a desire or a fantasy to do something. It can be socially impactful or it just can be a fantasy, but they all somehow have the capability to implement that which is in their heads and making it real in the world." On Mentoring "...it was a bit of an experiment. And I just immediately warmed to it because I just thought that it would be a nice thing to do. And also a friend introduced me to an organization in New York called The Fortune Society, which is a remarkable organization that does more than mentoring. It provides a whole range of services to people who've been incarcerated, and it helps them adjust in multiple ways. There's a residential facility and there's instruction. And so I've been also going out to the facility in Queens and doing - I hesitate to call it mentoring, it's my attempt at mentoring. But the truth is I hope it's good for them. It's definitely good for me. And I really don't know if I'm helping them enough or perfectly. I am trying. It is spectacular to be around people whose day-to-day is entirely different than mine and whose frame of reference is different. Either a student or someone who's been in prison for 26 years - and I'm listening to what their challenges are in life, work, the world, and how they see the world. And I don't want to get coy and say it's really inspiring, but it is. And you mentioned something earlier when we were speaking about doing doing the exercises, and it does seem to me, at least for me,

There was lots of big movie news this week, highlighted by one of our favorite punching bags from a few years back. AMC unveiled a new ticket price plan and naturally we are...indifferent about it? We talk about live events versus movie theaters and the performances of 80 for Brady and Knock at the Cabin.Consecration has everything needed for a discomforting horror film. The poster and images released have been downright frightening, the Scottish location gives the proper gloomy atmosphere, and the acting is spot on. Then comes the story. A suspicious murder that takes place in a creepy abbey has loads of potential.Instead, the film is one of the most frustrating we have ever talked about. It looks good and the cast do a fine job, but there is just too much going on. What starts as a fishy murder soon involves, the Crusades, half-ass attempts at folk horror, kids in cages, and nonsensical visits to prisons. At least the nuns laying face down in church looked cool.Firestarter was one of the worst received movies of 2022. It recently reentered the conversation when its young start was nominated for a Razzie. How could we not watch it? We were expecting an awful movie filled with terrible performances. Is the remake as bad as everyone says? And what does Stranger Things have to do with it?Adventures in Movies! is a part of the Morbidly Beautiful Podcast Network.

After writing and directing his debut film in 2012, Andrew Semans worked on a screenplay for a new idea that centered around a single mother battling against feelings of fear and paranoia when it came time to protect her child. The screenplay ended up on the infamous Black List — an annual group of the most liked scripts that haven't been picked up or produced by a major studio. Numerous award winning films have come from the Black List and Semans' latest screenplay ended up there as one of the top choices in 2019 alongside future films such as “Don't Worry Darling,” “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent” and “The Menu,” which is also due out in 2022. The finished product was eventually picked up for distribution by IFC Films and Shudder with the story centered around a woman who escaped an abusive past only to discover that her tormentor has found her more than 20 years later and now she's got more to protect than just herself when her daughter also lands in his crosshairs….In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we're going to do a kindness for our listeners as we review the 2022 film “Resurrection”…. (Music provided courtesy of Andrew Scott Bell)

He is an alumnus of the University of Southern California, and would direct several award-winning shorts; including "The Taking" (Screamfest Award for Best Student Short).

The immensely talented actor, writer, and producer Alison Brie is our episode 115 guest. A four-time collaborator of writer-director Jeff Baena, the pair have just put out Spin Me Round, a masterful and modern rom-com with a titanic twist, for IFC Films. Our captivating cover star is equal parts fan favorite and actor's-actor, and on this podcast we discuss specific roles she's played, her big body of work, roles on Mad Men, Community, GLOW and so much more. We talk tv versus film and the changed entertainment landscape, all peppered with intimate stories around her cool corral of creative collaborators, including husband Dave Franco, of course. We talk to the two-time Golden Globe and five-time SAG Award-nominated actor about what it's truly like, being widely and publicly recognized for your work. We talk about her turn as a writer; about how she does it, where she writes from (literally and figuratively), and about creative partnership. We discuss refueling and recharging as an artist, and the important role exercise plays in her life. You'll hear about the kinds of work Alison would like to take part in making in the future, as a writer, director and producer, and also as an actor, including her desire for doing something “dangerous and messy” when it comes to film. We talk working with women, basking in all things GLOW, Promising Young Woman, and exciting new project, Somebody I Used To Know, including the story about co-writing it in quarantine with her husband Dave, who is also director. Alison explains why fans of Community will get a kick out of its casting. She shares her special moment with Spielberg, all the details about unlike-anything-you've-seen Spin Me Round, down to Molly Shannon's crazy costumes and how part of the film's premise was sparked by an article about a certain Italian restaurant chain, and more. Then there's her #Obsixed list of latest obsessions, spanning skincare and touting tv. It's an incredible conversation with Story + Rain cover star, Alison Brie.

The 27th edition of Rendez-Vous with French Cinema wrapped up in New York a few weeks ago, and as always, the Film at Lincoln Center did a fantastic job with their programming, talks, and events. The acclaimed festival highlights the best of what contemporary French filmmaking has to offer, with many great artists from across the sea attending in-person, including Claire Denis, Arnaud Desplechin, Mathieu Almaric, Emmanuel Carrère, Emilie Carpentier, Vincent Maël Cardona, and Leyla Bouzid. One of the great auteur filmmakers of our time is Jacques Audiard, who brought his film "Prais, 13th District" to the festival after its world premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. The film is a fascinating exploration of casual sex and relationships set in modern-day Paris, seen through the eyes of complex adults starring Lucie Zhang, Makita Samba, Jehnny Beth & Noémie Merlant. Audiard and Zhang were kind enough to talk with me about the film, their work together, and what they plan to do next. Please take a listen to my conversation with them below and be sure to check out the film which is opening in limited release this week from IFC Films. Thank you.

Codename Thor joins Caitlin to talk about 2012's Byzantium, which is the first vampire movie we've covered on the show.

I quiz Thor on his vampire knowledge, and we somehow land on X-Men for a while. Be sure to check out Thor's Hour of Thunder, available wherever you get your podcasts.
What really happened to the Dyatlov hikers?In 1959 a group of Russian hikers disappeared in the Ural mountains. Months later their bodies were found, showing signs of mutilation, exposure to strange chemical substances, and exposure to radiation. We examine a new theory in this episode that we think solves this decades-old Russian mystery, involving the US Cold War spying flights orchestrated by the USAF Strategic Air Command and CIA, and a Chernobyl-esque nuclear accident at the Kyshtym plutonium enrichment facility which the Soviets tried to hide from the rest of the world. If you like our content please subscribe to our bonus episodes. The theories about the reason for the Dyatlov party's demise run the gamut from kadabatic winds, to avalanche, to yetis and ghosts. But we think it far more likely that they were inadvertently struck by a photo flash bomb: a device dropped by a spy plane for night time aerial photography. 1, 2 There are documented cases of photoflash bomb accidents in America as early as 1938, and they were used regularly for night flight spy missions during the Korean War in the early 1950s. The photoflash bomb theory explains many of the mysteries surrounding the condition of the bodies of these hikers. The strange grey material on their bodies could be magnesium, burns to their skin could have been caused by proximity to the blast, photos of bright orbs in their camera film could have been the flash bombs themselves, seemingly frantic behavior that caused them to lose contact with each other, all of these details lend more credence to this theory of a photoflash bomb causing their deaths. 3 We think this is the most likely explanation for what happened to these people, and we cover all of the details in this episode. If anything, declassified books and documents from the US military give further weight to this theory about the Dyatlov party, as they paint a more clear picture of the mentality of the people in charge of operating the US military and intelligence agencies at the time. In particular, a declassified book from the CIA covers in some detail the disagreement between USAF officials Curtis Lemay and Jimmy Doolittle and CIA director Allen Dulles about the role of recon flights, generally. 4 We also talk a bit about the found-footage horror film "Devil's Pass" which is a pretty good encapsulation of all of the crazy theories about this incident in fictional form. 5 Over 200 members of US military and intelligence flight crews were shot down over Soviet airspace during the cold war. The vast majority of their families were lied to about their condition and whereabouts. As we publish this there is a brand new war brewing between Russia and NATO over control of Ukraine. Hopefully one of these days we get past World War II, but not today it seems... 1. Harrington Aviation Museum, Photoflash Bomb , American military design. ⇤2.

"I was 23 when I first approached him about making this film," filmmaker Robert Weide says in the trailer for his IFC Films documentary Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time."I became obsessed. What high school kid isn't going to gobble this up?" Weide continudes, holding a copy of the author's dark comic novel Breakfast of Champions, "He thinks what I think about the world."Thirty-nine years ago, Weide reached out to his literary idol proposing a documentary on Vonnegut's life and work. Shooting began in 1988 and the doc reflects the friendship and bond Weide and Vonnegut formed over the decades."I was always filming on and off with him over the years," says Weide in the trailer. Vonnegut died on April 11, 2007.Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time dives into the author's upbringing and his creative output, spanning his childhood in Indianapolis, his experience as a prisoner of war in World War II, his marriage, family and divorce, his early careers as a publicist for General Electric and a car salesman, and his long years as a struggling writer, leading to eventual superstardom in 1969 following the publication of his lightning-bolt anti-war novel Slaughterhouse-Five (which would later be adapted into the 1972 movie from George Roy Hill).The documentary follows Weide's odyssey as he examines the impact of Vonnegut's legacy on his own life, extending far beyond the printed page.Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time was announced as part of the lineup for Doc NYC today. IFC is releasing the documentary in theaters and VOD on November 19.Weide produced and wrote Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time and he co-directed with Don Argott.Weide was nominated for a Documentary Feature Oscar in 1999 for Lenny Bruce: Swear to Tell the Truth. He would go on to win a Primetime Emmy for that docu in Non-Fiction Programming, Picture Editing, as well as two other Emmy wins for Directing in a Comedy Series (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Outstanding Informational Special (W.C. Fields: Straight Up). He is the EP of HBO's award winning comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm and has directed 29 episodes throughout the series' 10 seasons.
