John Knapich and Bob Muller met as film students at The New School in the early ‘80’s. They shared a life long passion for movies. They haunted the many retro movie theaters in New York City, wrote screenplays, made student films, worked together at Broadcast Arts, and through their careers continued to watch thousands of their favorite films and discuss them over many beers at the “Paul Newman” bar (The Horseshoe Bar/ aka Vazacs) on Avenue B.
Now they hope to share these movies with you on their podcast, Film Detour.
