Exclusive: Brock Otterbacher Unveils Hitchcock Figure and Discusses Toy Production at Mondo

There are but a few simple truths in this world consistent as gravity. Among them are the following: Darth Vader is Luke’s father, time travel is “heavy“, and Mondo is awesome. Previously we’ve talked to Rob Jones and Mitch Putnam about posters and Mo Shafeek shared stories about vinyl releases, but today we’ve got something […]

Video Interview…Richard Kaufman Conducts Hollywood Classics for The Dallas Symphony

Over the years, we’ve made acquaintances with all manner of filmic and musical personalities. While feigning journalistic pursuits, we at GoSeeTalk are really just a bunch of fan boys.

Interview…Composer Brian McOmber on the Emotional Instability of ‘Krisha’

Krisha, the feature length film from Trey Edward Shults (which is adapted from his short film of the same name), has a lot in common with Requiem For A Dream.

Interview…Logan Marshall-Green on Karyn Kusama’s ‘The Invitation’

The term slow-burn doesn’t really apply to Karyn Kusama‘s paranoia thriller, The Invitation. This Drafthouse title is more appropriately like being slow-roasted alive. The film is effective in that it’s never truly transparent in what it’s trying to do. You may think you have it figured out from the get go, but when the story […]

Exclusive: Director Matt Schrader Offers A Look Into ‘SCORE: A Film Music Documentary’

Have you ever wondered why certain film scores stick in your head?
