We had so much to say about this year's Chattanooga Film Festival that we couldn't help but hit the record button again! Joe and Graham keep it rolling with a slew of shorts such as Roger is a Serial Killer, The Cost of Flesh, Giallo, Like Me, Apotemnofilia, and the BANANAS The Rainbow Bridge. And things get meta as we talk podcast representation in films during our features discussion which include Graham Skipper's The Lonely Man with the Ghost Machine, Video Visions, Falling Stars and Carnage for Christmas.

On this episode of Exposure Time, we preview the documentary, Ennio, a retrospective look at the work of master film composer, Ennio Morricone.......... sorry I got lost thinking of the sweeping beauty that is the theme to One Upon a Time in the West. Well, at this point, might as well save all of the gushing, flowery language, and superlatives for the episode. It's a good one.
