      Hello Eamon,
      Thanks for the thumbs up! And congrats, you’re the very first comment on the site. Sorry no goodie bag just yet. I’ll see about getting some when I get some sponsors!

      Hello Billy,

      Many thanks you for the compliment and thank you for the visit! Forthcoming podcasts for Davenport After Dark
      will include The Manchurian Candidate, Don’t Look Now and LA Confidential. I hope you continue to tune in. I am
      very interested to learn your thoughts on the podcasts already posted. What are your favorite films? We try to pick
      films that are having an anniversary. But perhaps if you have a particular favorite?

    Great to hear from you! I hope yourself and Justin and everyone in Derry are safe and well. I won’t be able to make it up for this year’s festival so please send Bernie and Shauna and the old team my best wishes.

    I enjoy the insight and perspective you bring to each of the films that you describe.
    Out of curiosity, have you ever done one on The Conversation?

    Keep up the good work and well done on the web site.

    Hello Shane,

    Thank you very much for the very kind words. Funny that you should mention The Conversation as it is a film I have long wanted to address. The only thing impeding me from doing so is finding the anniversary. For the Davenport After Dark series, we try to find a film/actor/director/event that is coming up to some sort of commemorative mark: 5 years, a decade and so on. The Conversation was released in 1974, Gene Hackman was born in 1930 and Francis Ford Coppola was born in 1939. However, I will try and work it in somehow; it is a landmark film in so many ways, and also a film I admire enormously.

    Perhaps if there is another film that catches your interest? Upcoming titles include Surrealism in Cinema, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Literary Adaptations, The Breakfast Club, Amadeus, The Night of the Hunter, Angel Heart and the films of Steven Soderbergh. I hope that at least one of those catches your attention.

    In the meantime, thank you for having taken the time to visit the site. There are plenty of films in the podcast archive which I hope you may peruse.

    Yours, Steven Benedict

    Hi Connor,
    The way I look upon it is, the money invested in starting your own blog is only a pretty penny if you don’t do it right. If you go to the right person, you’ll be very happy. From experience, I strongly recommend pixelapes. They are based in Dublin, Ireland.
    They are extremely professional and swift. I went to them in response to my initial designer who turned out to be a disaster. They took up the slack and before I knew it, the whole thing was up and running.
    Best of luck with your blog. Is it film related? Let me know when you go live.
    Yours, Steven Benedict
