I saw Brian and Charles the other day and I genuinely loved it. It was sweet, funny, original and highly enjoyable. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you check it out.
I was able to reach out to the director, Jim Archer, and he was kind enough to sit down and have a chat with us at here at the Last Movie Outpost.
Annoyingly, Jim’s video froze after about 10 seconds into the interview, so I had to use a nice picture of him instead, the wonders of modern technology, eh? Funnily enough, it turned out that Jim just lives down the road from me in Dorset, Southern England.
He was such a nice guy to talk to, and the story of how Brian and Charles evolved is really interesting. Listen to the interview to hear how it was based on a stage comedy show and ended up as a full-length feature film.
It was also interesting to hear about the budget of Brian and Charles compared to, say, the budget of Avengers: Endgame.
I’m going to continue to sing the praises of Brian and Charles. I really did love it and I’m not just saying that because Jim was nice enough to do the interview with us. The movie is a wonderful break from the ‘content’ that Hollywood churns out.
Thank you again to Jim Archer.
