KCRW's The Treatment

KCRW's The Treatment


A treatment, in Hollywood parlance, is a concise overview of a screenplay. On THE TREATMENT, film critic Elvis Mitchell turns the tables and gives the treatment to some of the most influential and innovative forces creating movies and popular art and entertainment. Each week, Elvis speaks with an amazing array of guests, discussing everything from their inner conflicts to their interior design. With a straightforward style that understates his vast knowledge, Elvis is able to extract insights, issues and inspirations from even the most introverted guests. Conversations on THE TREATMENT are mostly comfortable, sometimes contentious, but always fascinating.More from KCRW's The Treatment »
