Lambcast #577 A Conversation with Author Eric Friedmann

by Richard Kirkham · March 26, 2021 · Featured, LAMBcast, Uncategorized · No Comments

Our best laid schemes often go awry, and this week, the planned project fell apart but have no fear, something good for you is still on the plate for this week. Originally this was going to be a bonus episode but it now fits nicely in the calendar and it’s great to share it with you.

Eric Friedmann is a blogger who has taken his work into a new medium with a series of books that most of the audience here should appreciate. This is not simply a series of reviews but rather a personal reflection on how movies have shaped his life and informed the person he has become. All of us clearly want to talk about how we see the films we watch, while Eric has found an interesting way to do that and through persistence has put it down on paper.

Join Richard as he talks about the book with it’s author and they both reflect on how cinema has influenced us all. You may very well discover that this book is close to being your own autobiography.
