For this episode, number 70, I finally spoke with director Patrick Read Johnson.
He recently released his many years in the making, labour of love 5-25-77.
A film that semi fictionalises and chronicles the early life of a character, named Patrick Read Johnson and his love of movies like 2001 A Space Oddysey, Star Wars and Close Encounters.
I saw an early cut of this about ten years ago with several scenes missing. Patrick and I connected over the release of my Star Wars Begins (still available to view for free on Vimeo by the way).
5-25-77 is currently available on blu ray and on several streaming platforms.
So here’s my chat with the director of 5-25-77, Patrick Reid Johnson and I’ll be back at the end for a bit more jabbering on.
