Film A Week Podcast Episode 43: “Grizzly Man”

“I would never, ever kill a bear in defense of my own life – would not go into a bear’s home and kill a bear.”

Hosts Serg Beret and Patrick Raissi witness the life and death of Timothy Treadwell in Werner Herzog’s controversial documentary “Grizzly Man.” Listen as we discuss Herzog’s view on the chaos of nature, Treadwell’s own mental health and how unbelievable the story is as it unfolds.

Film A Week Podcast Episode 39: “Swingers”

“You’re so money and you don’t even know it!”

Hosts Serg Beret & Patrick Raissi hang back with Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn at the height of the Swing revival to figure out the rules of moving on and dating with 1996’s “Swingers.” Warning: this episode is kind of a trainwreck as they try to talk about the neurotic nature of Mike, Vince Vaughn’s breakout role and the abstract indie approach.
