Matt Holzman sees an awful lot of movies - some of them pretty obscure - but only a few are selected for KCRW's First Take Screening Series (formerly Matt's Movies). So here on the blog, Matt thought he'd share about the best movies he's seen - as well as thoughts about the Business and more. Matt is a KCRW veteran, the creator of The Business, public radio's program about the business of show business.
