Episode 41: Adrian Martin

I_Know.jpg

Bill speaks to author and film critic Adrian Martin about how a childhood interest in science fiction fanzines lead him towards a rich and varied life in film culture, from teaching film at age 19 and working as a freelance film/arts critic to writing books, co-editing online journals like Rouge and collaborating with fellow critic Cristina Álvarez López on audiovisual essays. Topics include: writing techniques and outfoxing subeditors, progressive rock, specializing in certain films/filmmakers, audio commentaries, Bill Krohn, discussing troublesome directors, early 1980s Melbourne film culture, Josef Von Sternberg and experiencing premonitions in dreams concerning PLANET OF THE APES.
