We speak to the director of Bunny and the Bull : Paul King

user
We speak to the director of Bunny and the Bull. Fans of The Mighty Boosh rejoiced at the news that series director Paul King was turning his gaze to the big screen. Featuring predictably great comic turns from Noel Fielding, Julian Barratt and Richard Ayoade, Bunny and the Bull is sure to please the legions of Boosh obsessives out there. But King is by no means playing it safe in his transition to feature directing, as he explained when we met this week. Did you always imagine ...

Interview with Clive Owen at the BFI London Film Festival

user
It's the BFI London Film Festival and I'm at the BFI Southbank to meet Clive Owen. We can all just google Clive Owen to read about his achievements as a BAFTA, Golden Globe winner and for his extensive work in the film and tv industry. Therefore I thought I should pick out some goodies from the interview, that you don't read about everywhere else... Born 1964 in Coventry, Clive Owen was a man who didn't have it all set in his early life. With a father who left the family when Owen was three...

Men who stare at Goats - The London Film Festival

user
Well, what can you say when you've got  George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Ewan McGregor and Kevin Spacey in one film.  Add to that a comedy based on life being stranger than fiction. The movie is inspired by UK journalist, Jon Ronsons non-fiction best seller, exploring the bizarre activities of a secret, elite division of the US military trained in psychic powers and psychological warfare' techniques.  It is a roller coaster ride through a quirky, crazy, absurd, nostalgic adventure that amuse...

We catch up in London with Cristian Mungiu, the director of 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days.

user
Cristian Mungiu returns to the Festival with Tales from the Golden Age, a comic creation from a collective of Romanian directors which takes a darkly ironic look at Romania under the Ceaucescu regime and the idiocies of daily life in a dictatorship.   What was the idea behind the making of this film? People answer these questions very easily, but actually what happened was that I was travelling a lot in festivals with my first film, and I was seeing lots of people my ag...

You really should see my film because… you saw images of it or you read about it and found it interesting. The first thing that s...

I wrote it when I was not re...
