Their obsession. Their words. Someone else’s movie.

Hosted by Paul Davidson, the weekly series interviews filmmakers, producers, writers, actors, and film fanatics, then hands them the mic to present their own personal feature-length audio commentaries of the movies that moved them and made them who they are today.

In the past, the show has seen Frank Oz tackle Touch of Evil, Patrick Brice decrypt Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Matt Spicer zone in on Blow Out, and both Max Minghella and Jamie Bell attend Four Weddings and a Funeral.

So, cook up some popcorn, turn off the lights, and push play twice.
