Dorian Brown Pham is the lead of Running Wild, the story of Stella Davis (Pham), a determined widow who aims to keep her ranch at any cost. Sharon Stone plays the animal rights activist who serves as her biggest challenge. During my interview with Pham, I asked her to pick a movie that she loves and she came up with two (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Holiday). Take a listen to Pham after the jump!

Ben Affleck’s new film Live By Night, the Frank Grillo headlined thriller The Crash, the Morgan Spurlock documentary Rats, and another Affleck flick (The Accountant) are discussed on this week’s CinemAddicts.
With Anderson doing his Friday/Saturday movie picks on our Facebook page, I’m also going to give my failed “1000 Movies” effort another go (there’s more to life than my fixation with Brian De Palma movies!). This time out, I’m going for a completely different approach, and I’m asking your help in the process!!
It’s the last show of the year, and Anderson Cowan and I cover Paterson, 20th Century Women, and the documentary By Sidney Lumet. Quick recap of the year-end show, as well as a detailed breakdown of the, as Anderson likes to say, proohgrum (aka program), is found after the jump.
Anderson Cowan and I discussed The Love Witch back on Episode 45, and I haven’t been able to get this film off my mind. As much as I love the digital revolution, there’s something to be said for the warmth and texture of a 35mm, and if that’s your cup of tea then The Love Witch absolutely delivers.
Episode 39 of CinemAddicts is up, and my goodness, I just realized Anderson Cowan and I reviewed four films this week that’s coming out on Friday. Two of them are highly recommended by me, and AC really digs in to a new music documentary with a charismatic figure taking center stage. Hit the jump for a full breakdown of the show:
Now playing in select theaters, Seoul Searchingcenters on a group of Korean teenagers from all over the world who spend the summer in Seoul to learn more about their heritage. The film is inspired by Benson’s own memorable summer, and the comedy is also a loving homage to some of the transcendent teen films from the 1980s.
Just finished up the press junket for The Infiltrator, a movie centers on federal agent Robert Mazur’s (Bryan Cranston) attempts to take down Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. Benjamin Bratt co-stars as Robert Alcaino, the drug trafficker who was Escobar’s top lieutenant.
