Set It Up
A solid romantic comedy with sharp dialogue, amusing characters, and a few surprises up its sleeve.
Talk Easy is a weekly podcast of intimate, long-form interviews with people from all walks of life: filmmakers, comedians, activists, politicians, actors, and beyond. The show is hosted by film writer and RogerEbert.com contributor Sam Fragoso. Previous guests have included Michael Phillips, Alan Arkin, Charlene de Guzman, Melanie Lynskey, Eric André, Spencer Haywood, David Oyelowo, Don Cheadle and more.
For the 35th episode of the podcast, NY Magazine TV critic and our own editor-in-chief Matt Zoller Seitz joins Sam to talk about the state of film criticism. They also discuss director Oliver Stone, the subject of Seitz's latest book, The Oliver Stone Experience, a rollicking compendium of essays, interviews and analysis that took five years to write. The wide-ranging conversations hits on the legacy of Roger Ebert, raising children, and some advice Matt gave Sam about a year ago that changed his life.
