Happy New Year, podcast listeners! In honor of 2014, we are back with Episode 14. This edition features filmmaker Tze Chun, co-writer/director of the indie thriller Cold Comes The Night, starring Bryan Cranston and Alice Eve. The movie opens in select theaters and VOD on Friday, January 10, so I sat Tze down to talk about the film, his career, and the art of portraiture, among other things.
