The Wages of Cinema
About This Show
A podcast that is practically all about MOVIES! Cinema, films, celluloid, digital, whatever you want to call it. Jack and Andrew are the hosts, and we talk about new movies, classics, cult work, things we've seen and have never seen, special segments about directors and styles and trends, and 'Required Reading' which is about movie books. And the "Local Vocal" series gives you in-depth interviews with NYC/NJ based filmmakers, actors, artists and musicians.

Local Vocal #16: DEVIN KLOS RETURNS!
7 days ago
If you go a little ways back into the podcast - on Soundcloud we have the helpful Playlist that has all of our Local Vocal episodes - you can find that episode 5 was a talk with writer, actor and now director Devin T Klos. It was a good conversation, but we had to have Devin back on the podcast as he has directed his first feature: IDOL WORSHIP. We talk how the idea came to being, the challenges of shooting a film in seven days, the beauty of Inwood and the horror of making a movie during the election week of 2016 (Jack also recounts and gives context to the Cinema Immersion Tank episode on Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, if you're curious to know more backstory behind that). And there is mention a little project Jack and Devin both worked on in 2016 that somehow featured Star Wars.

The hosts of the Wages of Cinema have a great rapport with one another, and this comes through as they talk about new and classic movies. There's witty banter, serious analysis, and personal discussions on which films have meant the most to them - all while talking about the new movies they've seen in the past week (the two-minute movie mile has a wide variety, so if one movie doesn't grab you the next might), the 'List' segments (more in-depth stuff there), and then they have a main subject. My favorite part is their 'Required Reading', which they don't do all the time but is usually a solid bet for recommendations of quality movie books.
They're not Siskel & Ebert, but then who is?
