Episode 59 – Discussing Nicholas Ray With Grad Student Will Scheibel

On this week’s episode we’re inviting grad student Will Scheibel to talk about director Nicholas Ray, who is the subject of his thesis. He’s also teaching a class on film noir in the summer.

We start off with What Have You Seen Lately, and Jason has seen a ton, including Tree Of Life and Horrible Bosses. Andy’s talking about the Charles Burnett series and a recent comedy. Will is talking about some of his favorite films at the IU Cinema and a straight to DVD animated comic book film.

Will then explains his interest in Nicholas Ray, and gives us a good overview of his style and career, and shares some stories he’s discovered. We wrap up with Will discussing his film noir class, coming in Summer of 2012.
