On episode number three of The Documentary Blog Podcast Jay and Josh are joined by Malcolm Ingram, director of Small Town Gay Bar and most recently, Bear Nation. You might also recognize Malcolm as the co-host (alongside Kevin Smith) of the popular podcast Blow Hard, a weekly show that’s part of Smith’s awesome Smodcast Podcast Network. This week we get into an EXTREMELY SPOILER HEAVY talk about the controversial Sundance favourite ‘reality thriller’ Catfish. While Malcolm is fairly clear cut in his feelings towards the film, Jay attempts to sort out all of the pro’s and con’s of his experience. This leads us into some Dear Zachary discussion and a little bit of TIFF talk (including Ondi Timoner’s Cool It). We also talk with Malcolm about the making of Small Town Gay Bar and his latest film, Bear Nation.
Again, our Catfish discussion is full of spoilers so be sure to check our show notes if you want to skip ahead and come back to our discussion once you’ve seen the film. As always, share your thoughts in the comments section!
