ChatCast 25: Adam Egypt Mortimer on ‘Daniel Isn’t Real’

July 4, 2019

Our Overlook Film Festival continues with an in-depth, obsessive, celebratory conversation with filmmaker Adam Egypt Mortimer discussing his new film "Daniel Isn't Real." Put this movie on your radar folks as it's easily one of the best films we've seen all year long. We go everywhere in this chat. We discuss Mortimer's relationship with Grant Morrison, the various influences that fed this cosmic horror take on the imaginary friend story, and the detailed process in which Mortimer engages with well before filming actually begins. Drop Dead Fred; this movie is not.
