Reviews of the week's new movies, interviews with filmmakers, and discussion. Hosted by Larry Mantle

Filmweek (09/13/13): The Family, Insidious: Chapter 2, Jayne Mansfield's Car and more

by FilmWeek

Larry is joined by KPCC film critics Henry Sheehan and Andy Klein to review this week’s releases, including Insidious: Chapter 2, The Family, Wadjda and more.

And KPCC critic Peter Rainer joins us over the phone from Toronto to discuss some of the highlights from the Toronto Film Festival. 

We also remember the major contributions of Ray Dolby who has died. He was, of course, the creator of that famous Dolby sound technology heard on so many films you’ve enjoyed.

And we'll talk about why some of the newer, younger A-list celebrities are getting pain C-list salaries. TGI-FilmWeek!
