Director William J. Stribling saw THE BIRDCAGE as a 7 or 8 year old, and it instantly became his favorite, watched on repeat. At its center is director and drag club owner Armand Goldman (or is it Coleman?), played by the incomparable Robin Williams. Decades later, Will is a comedy director himself, whose latest film (full disclosure: it was written by this show’s producer, Marissa) is THE MIRROR GAME.
After this conversation, Jordan has one quick thing about another director: past guest Christopher Landon!
Watch THE MIRROR GAME on Tubi, Amazon, or YouTube.
About the show
On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
