The podcast

richard1Richard Alleva writes about film for the Catholic journal Commonweal‘s website commonwealmagazine.org. In our interview, he reads from his essay anthologized in a Best Movie Writing book edited by director Peter Bogdanovich. We also talk about, among other things, his formation as a critic; about why some films are so politically incorrect they should only be viewed in the privacy of one’s home; and about a recent film he was tempted to walk out of.
