A Frame Apart
About This Show
It’s Critic vs Screenwriter. Sometimes … maybe … kinda?
Welcome to A Frame Apart, the movie podcast from divergent perspectives under one roof. We’re your hosts, Ariel Fisher and Bob Barrow. Ariel’s a film critic and freelance journalist, and Bob’s a screenwriter. Each episode, we’ll take a look at two movies that have some sort of connection. Sometimes that connection will be obvious, and others not so much. On A Frame Apart, we aim to provide a variety of perspectives on cinema, not only from the standpoint of professionals on different sides of the camera, but as fans of media, pop culture enthusiasts, and lovers of cinema. We will speak passionately about subjects near and dear to us through film, and expound upon larger issues that permeate our cinematic culture and how we consume media. From horror to comedy, and everything in between, every great film is just a frame apart.

Episode 65 - Laura VS The Night Of The Hunter
< 1 day ago
This week, Noirvember resumes with a look at the diversity of the genre. To tackle this moving target, we sat down with Otto Preminger's magnificent Laura (1944) and Charles Laughton's extreme The Night of the Hunter (1955). The former, starring Gene Tierney as the eponymous heroine, and a young Vincent Price in one of his earliest (and favorite) roles, is a classic, sophisticated example of Film Noir. Meanwhile, the latter, starring Robert Mitchum as the abominable Harry Powell, and silent film legend Lillian Gish as the formidable Rachel Cooper, challenges our preconceived notions of Noir and its potential, while pulling from the genre's German expressionism roots. Come along as we discuss these, and other Noir classics, and their stylistic significance.
