  1. I’d be interested to know more about Aaron’s project.

  2. Wow Aaron, I am speechless!!!

    Well, it doesn’t benefit anybody to remain so here, so I’ll say first and foremost THANK YOU for mention the project, WitD and myself! Yes, we did do film noir (Maurizio Roca in a fantastic solo performance), but also, musicals, comedy, romance, westerns and as you mentioned in this podcast, childhood films. Both of you guys are informed, passionate, ever-erudite and fully immersive. You have scaled mountains in building enthusiasm for this project!! great to hear you discuss THE FACE OF ANOTHER, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, CHILDREN OF MEN, ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, 2001. Tarkovsky, and the overview of art films within the genre. Just a fantastic presentation, and no thanks could be sufficient!!
