If you’re a true movie fan, then you without doubt love at least one of the many great works of the late Stanley Kubrick, if not most of them.
With titles like A Clockwork Orange, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, Spartacus, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, and Full Metal Jacket to his name, Kubrick is a true god of cinema, worthy of endless discussion.
All of that said, popular movie podcast and good friends to Geeks of Doom, Movie Geeks United! (featuring our own Jerry Dennis) is currently in the midst of an epic 8-part series celebrating the life and works of this legendary filmmaker — a tribute to a man whose name will live on for eternity that no fan should miss.
If you’re into entertaining podcasts and great interviews, then you need look no further than Movie Geeks United on BlogTalkRadio. One of their popular offerings is called the “Director Series” where they focus on some of the greatest directors ever to exist, their careers, and their lives. One of the recent interviews that they did is for their show will look at perhaps the most controversial director we know: Roman Polanski.
As you all know, Polanski was recently arrested in connection to infamous 1977 case which convicted him of having sex with a 13-year-old girl. Because of these stunning developments, the interview — which was conducted hours before news of Polanski’s arrest was reported — looks to contain some very interesting information, and perhaps some new layers to the chaos.
Hosts Jamey DuVall and Geeks of Doom’s own Jerry Dennis spoke to a multitude of people, including Brett Ratner (Rush Hour); Bobbie O’Steen, the wife of Roman’s late editor, Sam O’Steen (Chinatown, Rosemary’s Baby, Frantic); cinematographer William A. Fraker (Rosemary’s Baby); and critic Keith Uhlich. They will also refer back to a 2008 interview that they had with Marina Zenovich, director of the documentary Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired.
