Reject Radio #90: Palme d’Or

This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, we talk with Louder Than a Bomb director Greg Jacobs and get an update on how Cannes is shaping up from Simon Gallagher.

Plus, Eric D. Snider from and our very own Matt Patches enter the squared circle of our Movie News Pop Quiz.

Then, we spend less than 15 minutes defining art. Take that, thousands of years of philosophy.

We get the job done here at Reject Radio, so kick off you shoes and stay awhile.

The Reject Radio Movie News Pop Quiz [The Beginning – 24:45]: It’s Snider vs Patches in a heavyweight battle of the silly last names. See who comes out on top, and listen as we struggle to figure out what art is. It’s really not as boring as that sounds. Promise.

The Point is the Poetry [24:45 – 46:35]: Documentary filmmaker Greg Jacobs talks about the poetry of Louder Than a Bomb, staying objective while filming compelling subject matter, and how to get people to forget they’re on camera.

La Vie en Rose [46:35 – The End]: Simon Gallagher is braving the sand and supermodels of Cannes, and we speak with him halfway through the festival to see what’s been loved, what’s been booed, and what we’ll be seeing in theaters near us.
