Ep343: Can't Spell KING without KIN

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and F This Movie!'s Patrick Bromley interview writer/director Steve Mitchell about his eye-opening documentary on influential genre filmmaker Larry Cohen, King Cohen! Now available On Demand and kicking off a limited theatrical run at Chicago's Facets Cinematheque, the movie provides an intimate look at a strong-willed visionary who blazed an independent path on the outskirts of Hollywood, entertaining and inspiring the likes of J.J. Abrams, John Landis, and Martin Scorsese.

This super-sized episode also includes an interview with Jonathan and Josh Baker, whose revelatory sci-fi feature debut Kin opens nationwide today.* Also, Ian talks about Olive Film's spectacular new Signature blu-ray edition of the Wachowskis' 1996 neo-noir, Bound; heaps praise on Patrick's 11-hour Tobe Hooper Tribute;** curses the iPhone's lightning-cable input once again; and offers up a fun little flashback involving the Man of the Hour, Larry Cohen!

Episode 343 has the right Stuff!

*You can watch the short film that inspired Kin, Bag Man, on YouTube--which you should definitely do if you're on the fence about seeing this movie in theatres.

**Part One is now available, with more segments coming soon.
