DVD Gurus: Reporters On Film

ACEPOSTER.jpg

From a manufactured media circus, to a desperate game of cat-and-mouse with a serial killer, Hollywood sure knows how to romanticize journalism.

On Friday's Up to Date, DVD Gurus Mitch Brian and Jason Heck join us to talk about some of their favorite films that feature reporters. We'll dive into some thrilling vampire conspiracies, reports gone wrong, and others that are sure to set off the investigator in everyone.

Also, for all you film buffs: Join Steve Kraske and the DVD Gurus for a special screening of All The President's Men Sunday December 8 at 2 p.m. at the Alamo Drafthouse. We'll screen the movie and have a post-film discussion. Tickets are $7. More details.

Guests:

  • Mitch Brian is a screenwriter and professor at the University of Missouri - Kansas City. 
  • Jason Heck is a freelance film critic and life-long tall person.
