Originally Aired: 09/27/19 – We review In the Shadow of the Moon. We talk with actor Boyd Holbrook and director Jim Mickle from the film and we talk some news.

Show Notes:

We play Mr. Green’s sit-down interview with director Jim Mickle and actor Boyd Holbrook regarding the film. Get some insights into the making of this creepy crime thriller.

Boyd Holbrook has amassed an impressive resume of meaningful and intense roles, starring alongside some of Hollywood’s most well-respected actors and working with the industry’s most visionary filmmakers, proving to be one of the industry’s most engaging and thoughtful talents, both in front of and behind the camera. We will next see Holbrook in Netflix’s genre bending psychological thriller IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON, opposite Michael C Hall. The film is set to release this Fall. Also this year, he starred in TWO/ONE, which made its US premiere at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival. The film explores the concept that while we are asleep in one place, we may be awake in another.

Jim Mickle is the co-creator, executive producer and director behind the popular series HAP AND LEONARD for SundanceTV and AMC. The critically lauded show based on Joe Lansdale’s novels starred James Purefoy, Michael K Williams, Christina Hendricks and Jimmi Simpson and ran for three seasons as the highest-rated show in SundanceTV history.

Our review of In the Shadow of the Moon starring Boyd Holbrook, Cleopatra Coleman and Bokeem Woodbine. In 1988, Philadelphia police officer Thomas Lockhart (Boyd Holbrook), hungry to become a detective, begins tracking a serial killer who mysteriously resurfaces every nine years. But when the killer’s crimes begin to defy all scientific explanation, Locke’s obsession with finding the truth threatens to destroy his career, his family, and possibly his sanity. Directed by Jim Mickle and also starring Michael C. Hall and Cleopatra Coleman, IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON is a genre-blending psychological thriller that examines the power of time, and how its passing can either bring us together or tear us apart.

We were scheduled to talk with actor Victoria Dunsmore from TIFF’s The Last Porno Show. However, due to an unforeseen personal matter, she was unable to call in.

When we couldn’t reach Victoria we ended up doing some news of the week (of course it was Sony/Disney deal over Spider-Man what else could it have been) and Mr. Green talked gravy… no, seriously he talked about gravy and it’s importance.

It was a great show!
