This is truly a momentous occasion. This episode marks the return of the inimitable Issa López. This time she’s on the show to talk about Ridley Scott’s classic, Blade Runner. Issa has so many fantastic anecdotes from her many years of working in Mexico’s film industry. She talks about the nightmare of someone else directing her own script. She reveals how she was fired from writing a screenplay for a movie she was directing. And she talks about collaborating with her old pal Guillermo del Toro. One of our favorite guests of all time, and she does not disappoint.
You can now buy Tigers Are Not Afraid on Bluray and DVD.
If you haven’t seen Blade Runner…it’s great!
AND, if you want to check out April’s Staff Pick – watch Kathryn Bigelow’s Strange Days
