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...

Power to the Pixel: The Brave New World of Cross Media: Like it or not, there's no going back

user
The Brave New World of Cross Media:  Like it or not, there's no going back - Power to the Pixel in conjunction with the London Film Festival Anyone in the Entertainment industry who does not already use cross-media/ mixed media/ new media or any of several terms used; owes it to themselves to attend a conference like the Power to the Pixel, held in London last week in conjunction with the London Film Festival.

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...

Festival thoughts from Yorgos Lanthimos, the director of Dogtooth.

user
Greek provocateur Yorgos Lanthimos stirred up controversy and stunned audiences at Cannes this year with Dogtooth, ultimately walking away with the Un Certain Regard prize. UK audiences can now discover this truly unique film for themselves as it makes its LFF debut on Friday. My time will be spent… watching films, walking the streets of London. 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...

Image: Martin Pieter Zandvliet (right) with his leading lady Paprika Steen Applause, the impressive debut feature from Danish director Martin Pieter Zandvliet, tells the story of Thea, an acclaimed actress attempting to reconnect with her two young sons whilst recovering from alcoholism.

Interview with Marc Fitoussi

user
Following an actor, writer and would-be chanteuse on their solitary quests for fame and glory, Marc Fitoussi’s La Vie d’artiste bristles with sharp observations and unpalatable truths about creative pursuit, artistic compromise and personal disappointment. La Vie d’artiste concerns a singer, an actress and a writer in pursuit of recognition. Are there any parallels with your experiences as a filmmaker? How did you come up with this story? I wrote it when I was not re...

Interview with Donald Mugisha

user
Donald Mugisha is a founding member of Ugandan film-making collective Yes! That’s Us. Their debut feature Divizionz is a refreshingly authentic portrait of African inner city slum life, centred around a group of young friends striving to make it in the city as musicians. Donald Mugisha Could you start by talking a bit about your film-making collective Yes! That's Us - how you formed, how you work together, and how you came to make this feature? We're a guerrilla filmmak...

Interview with the makers of Sunshine Barry and the Disco Worms

Sunshine Barry and the Disco Worms is an enormously fun new animated film from Denmark, about an earthworm who harbours a desire to escape his dull existence and form the world's greatest disco band! We caught up with the film's director Thomas Borch Nielson, along with co-directors Tonni Zinck and Daniel Silwerfeldt. Thomas Borch Nielson Could you start by talking about the animation process used for the film? Were there any unexpected challenges? Tonni Zinck: I was i...

Interview with Giles Borg

user
Equally at home filming Death in Vegas on stage or Tom Jones for a commercial, there isn’t much musically that Giles Borg hasn’t captured on film. He’s won acclaim worldwide for his short films, showing at major festivals around the globe, and now you can catch his charming feature debut. 1 2 3 4 follows bespectacled cardigan-wearer Stevie as he learns rock 'n' roll doesn't always come with the sex and drugs attached…  How has the London Film Festival been going for y...

LFF - Incendiary

user
Saturday evening saw two premiers, Sandra’s new boots (shiny, heeled, might have been a buckle) and Incendiary, Sharon Maguire’s take on Chris Cleave’s novel. The film stars Michelle Williams (with an uncanny London accent) as the Young Mother, Ewan McGregor as ambitious journalist Jasper Black and Matthew Macfadyen as chief of anti-terrorism and caravan fan, Terrance. The movie deals with the aftermath of a massive terrorist attack in London in which Williams’ husband and son are kill...

LFF - American Teen

user
American Teen is Nanette Burstein’s look at American teens (obviously) through the eyes of the senior year at a high school in Warsaw, Indiana. Or possibly a mockumentary homage to John Hughes, if you belief the IMDB posts! What Burstein has either discovered, or cleverly edited to discover, is that those clichés you have seen in every teen movie since The Breakfast Club, are actually true. We have the Megan the popular bitch (with hidden darkness of her own), Colin the local basketball sta...
