It's the Filmosophers movie talk show, with co-hosts Chris Busch and Bruce Miller where we give our filmosophy on the movies and have filmosophical discussions.

KRUU's own Tom Knight joins us today. Tom enjoys classic silent and foreign films that have influenced many filmmakers. Every time we have Tom on I feel like I'm getting in over my head (:)), he's such a scholar. Chris and Tom will review The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (1933).

We'll also alert you of the film Silent Light described as "an extraordinary, transcendent meditation on love and religion."

"The extravagantly talented director Carlos Reygadas’s immersion in the
exotic world of Silent Light feels so deep and true that it seems like
an act of faith." ~ Manohla Dargis; New York Times

We'll also review Burn After Reading and more, Friday afternoon at 12:30.

I walked into Everybody's this week and Paul immediately held up a DVD theman from earth Filmosopher's beer brothers (Busch & Miller) might find interesting. "Have you seen this?" he asked? It was Man From Earth and we had not. It's a science fiction story written by Jerome Bixby, perhaps best known for writing one of the most revered Star Trek episodes, titled "Mirror, Mirror". Man From Earth is a small production. But as with all effective science fiction, Bixby creates a premise that opens up several intriguing and ultimately spiritual possibilities. It's one of the best "what if" stories I've seen this year. We'll talk about it, with the intention of not letting any air out of the narrative balloon, so to speak.

We're in a lull between the summer and fall film seasons, which allows us to bring some independent films to Fairfield. One possibility we'll inform you of is the glowingly reviewed documentary Man On Wire.

Superstar Big Al Green will join us at 12:30 today.mongol

Mongol is held over in Fairfield's cultural district.

"Mongol, from its thrilling battles to its intimate romance, has the
look, scale, story and feel of an old-fashioned epic in the best and
biggest sense of the word." ~ Roger Moore; Orlando Sentinel

Big Al wants to tell us about Secrecy and joins the Filmosopher's anticipation of the Coen Brother's new release Burn After Reading, with another all-star cast.

heroizes and humanizes one of history's towering figures." ~ Amy
