In a special, KPCC pledge drive edition of FilmWeek, Larry and the critics will preview the Animation Is Film festival happening this weekend in Los Angeles.

Plus, the critics offer up their ears and their knowledge in order to answer any and all of your film-related questions.

Have you ever wondered if Tom Hardy and Leo DiCaprio should have switched roles in “The Revenant?” Or maybe the new “Blade Runner 2049” has you mulling over why there were so many versions of the original. Maybe you’ve always questioned the the roots and reasons for outlaw biker films like “The Wild Angels” and “Easy Rider.” Now is the time to ask!

We welcome your questions at 866.893.5722.

Guests:

Justin Chang, film critic for KPCC and the Los Angeles Times; he tweets @JustinCChang

Lael Loewenstein, KPCC film critic

Charles Solomon, film critic for KPCC, Animation Scoop and Animation Magazine
