Excellent companion piece for Pontypool - Prime Clyde
12 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

I've known Clyde Lewis and been a fan since the birth of his Ground Zero radio show in Salt Lake City. His skills as a broadcaster are nationally known, as is his V.O. performance as Toxie. I even worked with him on several episodes of a stillborn investigative television show. I was still taken by surprise by this performance.

At first, I thought, "Ah, here's Clyde doing his usual stuff," but that's not it at all. I was an acting coach and theatrical director for many years and I was seriously impressed by the caliber of this short film and Clyde's performance.

Wordspeaker really would make a great double bill with Pontypool. Both feature powerful performances, by beaten-down talk show hosts who fall into the classic mold of the wounded, but not yet defeated anti-hero making a last stand. Great stuff.

Wordspeaker deserves much good word-of-mouth.
