TEASER – Kirsten Johnson From ‘Dick Johnson Is Dead’



For the full version of this interview, subscribe at Patreon.com/Frotcast.

I normally avoid any movies about dementia like the plague, but one I loved is Dick Johnson Is Dead, in which documentarian Kirsten Johnson imagines all kinds of death scenarios for her father, Dick, who has recently been diagnosed with dementia, and has him help her reenact them on film. Dick Johnson is delightful and a great sport, and the movie is not only delightful and funny, but dare I say it, weirdly uplifting and life-affirming. I highly recommend it. I got to speak with Kirsten Johnson via Zoom this past week and I found her to be almost as good an interview as she is a filmmaker. She gave me the lowdown on some questions I had about the film, like how she filmed the surreal funeral sequence, and some questions about her life, like her kids and growing up  Seventh Day Adventist. I hope you enjoy it!


TEASER – Frotcast Bonus: Vince at Sundance



Here is just a taste of our Patreon-Only episode of the Frotcast where Vince goes to Sundance.

Hey frotcast patrons! It’s that time of year again where Vince Mancini leaves the comfort of the Frotquarters and treks on up to Park City, Utah for the very important Sundance Film Festival. This week, Vince regales Matt with tales of the festival and talks about some of the movies he saw including one where Michael Keaton did 9/11 or something. They also talk about Bulletproof 2: the sequel nobody asked for and nobody wanted but was made anyway because that’s just how shit works out sometimes. Listen now!

Keep on Avenging, and as always, you’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.


ANNOUNCEMENT – 373: ‘Book Of Henry,’ With Yusef Roach And Harry Moroz (Early Access For Patreon Subscribers)



This week on the Frotcast, me (Vince Mancini) and Matt Lieb are in the Frotquarters, joined by comedians Harry Moroz and Yusef Roach to talk about one of the most baffling movies of the last few years: Colin Trevorrow’s Book of Henry. It seemed timely, as Trevorrow recently claimed that Book of Henry is a “carbon copy” of A New Hope, the first Star Wars movie. Also, it’s on HBO Go now. Besides that, we learn about how Yusef grew up idolizing Jack Sparrow living in the Caribbean, how Harry grew up short and horny in Michigan, and typical Matt Lieb facts about how he has sex with inanimate stuff. Enjoy and Frot on. This episode is available now for Patreon subscribers here.
