Never go against the family!
Blood is thicker than water, and home is where the heart is. In Hollywood home is where the movie making industry is, and many a power family seems to have blood type 35mm. It’s in the genes. It’s tough to throw a rock in that town without hitting a fraternal team of filmmakers, or a pair of sisters sending out headshots. Many of these familial filmies are some of the most well known people in Hollywood, and this week on CinemaJaw we pick out our favorite of the bunch.
Our guest this week quickly becomes like family to us as he joins our discussion and lends his picks to the list. You may know Mr. Mark Dujsik from his minimalistically designed, literally titled, and well written blog Mark Reviews Movies. Mark is a member of both the Chicago Film Critics Association and the Online Film Critics Society. He has been reviewing film for a long time. He is also a member of a family. So he is pretty much the perfect person for this task!
In addition to a saunter up some family trees we also plumb the depths of Hollywood as always. Going “I for an I” (Interested or Ignore), bashing each other in a CinemaWAR, and playing a rousing game of Movie Trivia. We also have a NEW SEGMENT, that I will leave as a surprise! This Jaw is more loaded than your drunk Uncle Scott. So remember that film is in your DNA and take a listen!
