This week we've got a special interview with David Picker, a former studio head who helped wrangle Woody Allen, James Bond, and The Beatles for United Artists, greenlight Grease for Paramount, and turned Steve Martin into a movie star in the late '70s. We also wrap up the highlights of the New York Film Festival-- including some you might not have heard of-- and take a listener voicemail about what it means to show gore for gore's sake. We also pick our favorite remakes in honor of this week's Carrie.

Take a listen below and find your downloading options; for more from all of us, you can follow the show (@opkino), Da7e (@da7e), David (@davidehrlich or @CriterionCorner), Patches (@misterpatches) and Katey (@kateyrich) on Twitter.

We also welcome your feedback, and there are lots of new places you can find us! Find us and like us at our Facebook page or call and leave us a voicemail at (914) 410-6450-- if we like it, we may play it on an upcoming show.
