Interviews

Interview with Writer/Director Matt Schrader for 'Score: A Film Music Documentary' (2016)

Matt Schrader What is a film without a soundtrack? This questions is answered in writer/director Matt Schrader's crucial and poignant feature documentary 'Score: A Film Music Documentary' (2016). Imagine 'Titanic' without the epic sounds of Enya's voice weaved in with James Horner's haunting pipes; 'Gladiator' without Lisa Gerard's ethereal voice mixed with Hans Zimmer's soaring symphonies; 'Star Wars', 'Jaws' or 'Indiana Jones...

They are Larry (Kieran Coppinger), who has Down Syndrome, and Sophie (Charlene Kelly), an epileptic, and this is their first go at intimacy. Tom (Robert Doherty), their b...

DP John Schwartzman Shoots “The Founder”

  Textured, bittersweet and laced with irony, John Lee Hancock’s unvarnished chronicle of the Ray Kroc legend is hardly a hagiography. But its very ambivalence about the McDonald’s brand builder gives The Founder ethical shadings that lift it beyond facile biopic and into the realm of nuanced morality tale. Sly visual choices by cinematographer John Schwartzman further ensure that no tidy judgment is served up in this real-life tale.  Whether you find it appet...

DP Greig Fraser Captures “Lion”

  As a young boy coming up in rural India, Saroo Brierley often helped his big brother Guddu scavenge for food and money on trains. One evening in 1986 the brothers got separated. Five-year-old Saroo accidentally wound up a thousand miles from home, after boarding what turned out to be an empty, decommissioned train. “Dickensian” doesn’t begin to describe the conditions he toughed out in Kolkata, West Bengal, before being adopted by a well-heeled Australian couple. A qu...

Costume Designer Gitti Fuchs Outfits “Toni Erdmann”

  More than most films, the costumes in Toni Erdmann tell the story. Director Maren Ade’s new tragicomedy of manners makes its points as much through what its characters are and aren’t wearing as through anything they say. Set largely in Bucharest, it follows buttoned-up corporate consultant Ines Conradi (Sandra Hüller) and her prankish father Winfried (Peter Simonischek) as they struggle to reconnect as adults. The 65-year-old widower makes an impromptu visit...

“Seasons” Filmmaker Jacques Perrin Goes Wild

There’s a moment in Seasons when a bear covers its eyes in distress as two ursine cousins go at one another with a vengeance. It’s one of many heart tugging scenes in Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud’s new wildlife drama that captures empathy and tenderness, anger and aggression and a range of relatable behaviors in between. We can’t help but see a bit of ourselves in the secret lives of non-pets such as antelopes, horses, wolves and lynxes, but also smaller...
