Directors of Cinema: Episode 5- Danny Boyle


Welcome to another episode of Directors of Cinema, the podcast that highlights the careers of cinema’s most prominent directors. Each week, host Matthew Goudreau and a guest discuss selected works of a director chosen by the guest.

For this episode, Matt chose to reach outside the ranks of the TYF staff. Luckily, his longtime friend and film fan Alex McDevitt was willing to answer the call. He chose to talk about the films of director Danny Boyle. As the boys point out several times, no two Boyle films are alike. Matt even goes so far as to compare him to Stanley Kubrick in that regard. What do they have to say about Boyle’s eclectic filmography? Tune in to find out more.

As always, you can listen to the show directly on Shoutengine or download it for later enjoyment. Thanks again!

Matt is a 21 year old film buff and recent graduate from The University of Rhode Island. Growing up in a small town in the smallest state, Matt began developing a taste in film and general geekdom at a young age. After years of watching various DC and Marvel animated television shows as a boy, Matt has become quite the afficinado in the realm of comic books. Towards the end of middle school, Matt began delving into the world of film by watching anything he could get his hands on. Nowadays, his tastes range from classic film noir and the mindbending works of David Cronenberg to the latest trends on the independent scene. Don't worry; he's still one for the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or DC animated adventure. Comics aren't the only source of literature Matt enjoys. He can sometimes be spotted reading the works of Stephen King or even the plays of William Shakespeare. As an aspiring film critic and screenwriter, Matt is always looking for inspiration and new ideas.
