Today’s guest is Derrick Bang, a film critic and author who lives in Davis, pens reviews for his Derrick Bang on Film blog and the Davis Enterprise, is an expert on Peanuts, and recently finished writing a biography of jazz musician Vince Guaraldi. We talk about movies this December, the film festivals in Davis, his book, and his take on the state of movie-making in general. Archive alert: Bang last visited Davisville for a two-part interview a year ago, where the topics included his previous jobs--as entertainment editor for the Enterprise and as owner of the downtown store The Game Preserve--and a legend-worthy Davis publicity stunt: the giant Monopoly game he staged on a city block 30 years ago, where the Farmers Market is now. Part 1 and Part 2.
