Can’t tell you how excited I was to have a conversation with Brett Gelman this day. Oh, It’s always great to talk with Chris Gore as well. You may know Brett and that-guy-from-that-thing. Those “things” include Love, Camping, Stranger Things, Twin Peaks. Chris and I spoke to Brett about his role in Room for Rent, an indie comedy I saw at the 2017 San Diego International Film Festival.
We talked about social outrage, Brett’s comedy career, and Room for Rent. I also asked him about his time at UCB (Upright Citizens Brigade) and he gave some advice for people in the UCB system.
Two lonely teens struggle over whether to consummate their love before being separated forever. I gave Liza, Liza, Skies are Grey a close recommendation only for the smart dialogue of the lead character, Liza (Mikey Madison). I find with a lot of independent films that they focus on one or two brilliant moments in hopes that you’ll forgive a lot of mediocre scenes surrounding it. Liza, Liza, Skies are Grey barely works.
My love of movies and years of movie reviews have finally paid off. I have been hired as a contributor to Film Threat. The site originally began as a fanzine of its founder Chris Gore (Attack of the Show). Film Threat is now live on the interweb.
Personally, I love the access to a large library of independent films and as a personal source of pride, my reviews for the website become a part of Rotten Tomatoes.
