Interview with David Stratton – A Cinematic Life

This is an episode which has crawled out of our very shallow archives. It was supposed to be released earlier this year to coincide with the cinematic release of David Stratton’s documentary David Stratton: A Cinematic Life, but instead just didn’t get released! So here it is in all its average audio glory.

This interview was aptly recorded in the foyer of the great Windsor Cinema here in Perth, Western Australia, and alongside the background noises, David was under the weather on the day of the interview. None the less, I feel it’s an interesting enough interview (even if my nerves of interviewing an idol come through a little bit too much).

The rest of the episode is the Q&A which took place after the screening with local film reviewer Mark Naglazas and David Stratton. Again, the audio isn’t the best, but it’s still worth listening to if you can.

David Stratton’s Stories of Australian Cinema is playing on ABC iView right now, so make sure to check that out alongside the many Australian films on there before they disappear.

When they do disappear, make sure to head over to Ozflix.tv to rent old and new Australian films.

Andrew has been a film lover all of his life. For a while now he's been talking about how great films are and usually that's been directly to his wife, Bernadette. Now with AB Film Review everyone else in the world can listen to what Andrew has to say to his wife. Bernadette grew up renting videos from a Plains Video. She mostly hired out Cry Baby and wore the tape thin learning the lines to the John Waters classic. After a series of arguments in the car ride home with her husband, Andrew, the two decided to record their arguments and launch them into the world for everyone to listen to.
