Listen to James Gray Talk Fellini, 'The Immigrant' and His Favorite Movies

James Gray has, since 1994 debut “Little Odessa,” enjoyed a fruitful American indie film career despite studio pressures and tussles, including TWC’s infamous dumping of “The Immigrant,” his 2013 Cannes premiere that became a critics’ cause celebre

Gray, now foraying into television with a hardboiled animated series for adults, joins host Peter Labuza on the latest episode of The Cinephiliacs podcast to unpack his work, thoughts on indie filmmaking and Federico Fellini’s “Nights of Cabiria” whose streetwalker with a heart of gold played by Giulietta Masina influenced Marion Cotillard’s tragic heroine of “The Immigrant.”
