On the last podcast, Chris mentioned that some cool new changes were in the works for the show. Well, they start now! Welcome to the new Far From Hollywood, co-hosted by Chris Williams and Perry Seibert! Perry last joined the show in February for a discussion of the Coen Brothers, and his enthusiasm and deep film knowledge is a welcome addition to the show. Going forward beginning with the next episode, Chris and Perry will have regular film reviews and explorations of filmmakers, actors and themes, joined by various members of the Detroit Film Critics Society.
But to kick things off, this super-sized episode spends some time letting the two introduce themselves. talk about some of their most memorable and formative film experiences, and discuss the critics who influenced them. Also, you'll get to hear Perry talk about crossing cinematic picket lines and learn that Chris once (briefly) endorsed a film known as one of the worst ever made! It's a fun podcast!
The show will be back in just a week or two to discuss "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." After that, we'll settle into a groove with two episodes per month!
Welcome to the updated show; we hope you love it!
In the podcast, Chris mentions that he has podcasted and written about "The Last Temptation of Christ" twice in the past year. The podcast he appeared on is here and his article, "'Last Temptations, Attaboys and Dangerous Art" appears at Christ and Pop Culture.

Welcome to the latest episode of "Far From Hollywood," the official podcast of the Detroit Film Critics Society.
This week's episode is a special one. Rather than devote the entire hour to a review of a new release, in anticipation of next week's "Hail, Caesar!" we decided it would be fun to talk about the filmography of Joel and Ethan Coen. Joining the podcast this week is DFCS member Perry Seibert. Perry's written for All Movie Guide, TV Guide and appears weekly on Ann Arbor radio to talk movies. It's a great conversation, delving into our favorite Coen movies, characters and themes.
Spoiler for the Coens' movies are within.
As for "Hail, Caesar," look for a special bonus episode next week, featuring a roundup of reviews from DFCS members regarding the film. In two weeks, we'll be back!
Join the DFCS this Thursday, February 4, for a special DFCS screening night of "Hail, Caesar" at the Maple Theater in Bloomfield. The film starts at 8 p.m. and will be followed by a special panel discussion about the film featuring DFCS members Perry Seibert and Mike Tyrkus. Buy tickets here.

Hello everyone, and welcome back!
It's been awhile since our last episode. The busy holiday season made it hard to schedule a "Star Wars" episode or end-of-the-year wrap up, but we're back with a great, busy episode.
This week, Patrick Dunn from the Detroit News joins Chris to talk about "Anomalisa," which recently received an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Film. Following that, DFCS President Tom Santilli and leadership board member Mike Tyrkus sit down for an interview with the film's directors, Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson.
We hope you enjoy this episode. And tune in in two weeks for our next episode. In honor of "Hail, Caesar!" the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we'll be talking about the Coen Brothers' eclectic filmography. It's sure to be a great time.

Tom Santilli, president of the Detroit Film Critics Society, returns to the podcast to help announce this year's winners. Next week, we're hoping to be back with a look at "Star Wars -- The Force Awakens."
Also, please note that there were some technical difficulties halfway through. You'll hear a short tone and then the podcast reconnects with a slight change in audio, but it shouldn't affect the quality. We had some difficulties with a headset. Enjoy!

Welcome to Episode 2 of "Far From Hollywood." This week, don your best tuxedo, shake up a martini and make sure you have your license to kill, because we're taking on "Spectre," the latest James bond movie starring Daniel Craig and directed by Sam Mendes.
Mike Tyrkus of Cinema Nerdz returns to the podcast to talk with me about "Spectre." We're joined by Patrick Dunn, also of Cinema Nerdz and the Detroit News. Mike and Patrick will be present at this Thursday night's first DFCS movie night at the Riviera Cinema in Farmington Hills. Join them for a viewing of "Spectre," martinis and a post-movie discussion.
Just a programming note: in this week's episode, we state that we'll be back next week to review "Beasts of No Nation" on Netflix. Due to the logistics of getting this ready in addition to screenings, day jobs and other obligations, the podcast will actually become a biweekly episode, returning in two weeks with thoughts on "Spotlight" and possibly "The Hunger Games -- Mockingjay, part 2." We'll try to get an episode up every other week and, time permitting, try to get a few bonus episodes and reviews up as well -- but it's a busy time for all.
