In this special interview episode of And Why Not, Stuart Mulrain talks to director Matthew Bauer & editor Lesley Posso about their James Bond related documentary, The Other Fellow ...

For this special film-maker interview episode of  the podcast, Stuart is joined by Matthew & Lesley to wonder what did happen to those other fellows...

A Spoiler Warning is given in the podcast episode, ahead of diving into a particular discussion [which also TW mentions a character's experience of domestic violence - Ed], but if you don't want to know anything else about the film before you see it, we advise watching it before listening to this episode. You can find out where to watch The Other Fellow HERE. 

Here's the synopsis of the documentary:

1952. Jamaica. When author Ian Fleming needs a name for his suave, sophisticated secret agent, he steals one from an unaware birdwatcher and creates a pop-culture phenomenon about the ultimate fictional alpha-male.

2023. Seventy years after the publication of the first Bond novel and as all eyes turn to who could be the seventh 007, Australian filmmaker Matthew Bauer is on a global mission to discover the lasting, contrasting and very personal impacts of sharing such an identity with James Bond."

From a Swedish 007 super-fan with a WWII past to a gay New York theatre director, an African American Bond accused of murder, and two resilient women caught up in it all, Bauer’s cinematic mission is an audacious, poignant, and insightful examination of masculinity, gender, and race in the very real shadows of a movie icon.

And here's the documentary trailer:
