The themes of the week are: Actors being mistaken for the real thing then deciding to become the real thing, and Hollywood’s self-celebration. We have two movies with almost exactly the same construction and theme, the only real differences between the two films are the when and the where. So folks we have a battle between a Western that celebrates the hokey yet hearty silent film and a Science Fiction piece that offers a critique and a celebration of Star Trek and other classic Sci-Fi pieces .
We have a special guest host this week to help us dissect these films: Mr. Max Well. We hope to have Max on as a frequent quest as he is a professional cinematographer and a Chapman Film Alum with a lot to say about film and the industry. Give the films a watch and then tune in this Friday to hear how this fight goes down.
