Welcome back and thank you for sticking around as this marks the long awaited return of Directors of Cinema, the podcast that highlights the careers of cinema’s most prominent directors. Each week, host Matthew Goudreau and a guest discuss selected works of a director chosen by the guest.
On this episode, Matt welcomes returning guest Jon Winkler to the airwaves. With the upcoming release of Alien: Covenant, the boys decided to focus our re-debut on the films of Sir Ridley Scott. Unlike the majority of our shows, this episode is much larger in scope regarding his filmography. As a result, most of the films discussed aren’t as analyzed as past episodes. However, that means most of Scott’s movies are given at least a mild discussion of their standing in his canon. The duo also discuss Scott’s legacy as a director and where the Alien franchise can go from here.
As always, you can listen to the show directly on ShoutEngine or download it for later enjoyment. Thanks again!
