Cue the voice-over: “In today’s film culture, streaming video is considered especially convenient. In New York City, the dedicated critics who review these films are members of an elite squad known as Filmspotting: Streaming Video Unit. This is their live podcast.” Prepare for Oscar picks, IMDB keyword contests, online viewing recommendations, and more as hosts Alison Willmore and Matt Singer bring the biweekly podcast to Videology, the recently reopened Williamsburg video store/screening room/watering hole. Then steel yourself for a screening of Craig Zobel’s squirm-inducing 2012 thriller Compliance, followed by a Q&A with director Zobel himself—streamed in via Skype, appropriately enough.
