Directors of Cinema: Episode 12- Matthew Vaughn


Hello and welcome to yet another episode of Directors of Cinema, the show that highlights the careers of cinema’s most prominent directors. Each week, host Matt Goudreau and guest discuss selected works of a chosen director.

On this episode, Matt welcomes Michael Fairbanks to the airwaves to discuss another Matthew. His name is Vaughn….Matthew Vaughn. He hasn’t directed a Bond film as of yet but some of his films certainly signal his admiration for the franchise. While he’s only directed a handful of films, all of them have been adaptations, to some degree. As they discuss (along with a plethora of additional conversations), Matt and Michael point out why Vaughn has largely succeeded at applying his own stylistic touches to the work of others.

As always, you can listen to the show directly from Shoutengine or download it for later enjoyment.

Directors of Cinema – Episode 12- Matthew Vaughn

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.
