Mark Naglazas kindly agreed to sit down with our editor, Michael Barker – the day after the ‘Smith/Rock’ Oscars – to discuss movies, the purported death of movies, the art of a film critic, his favourite movies, the arts in general and the case for a movie studio in Fremantle.

It’s a lovely, informative podcast. Enjoy!
