While filmmakers such as Michael Bay specialize in making blockbusters, other filmmakers tackle more personal work. And few writer-directors get more personal than Richard Linklater. On this week’s show, Nathan Weinbender, Mary Pat Treuthart and Dan Webster discuss Linklater’s work, beginning with a review of his latest film, the animated memoir of 1969 Houston, Texas, titled “Apollo 10½: A Space Age Childhood,” then continuing with both a look at his career and offering their choices for personal favorite of his films.
