“The Witch” – Interview with Robert Eggers

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 18th, 2016 - Interviews

“[It’s] about having restraint. I can’t look into your soul. I don’t know what is the most scary to you so I have to hope that I can depict what is most personal and scary to me and then hold back and let the last bit be something that you fill in yourself. That’s the idea.”

“Anomalisa” – Interview with Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 22nd, 2016 - Interviews

“I want [people] to realize that this is something different. I want them to be open to the experience of Anomalisa, that they connect with it, that they don’t limit themselves to the conventions of what animation or drama are supposed to be. That would be great.”

“13 Hours” – Interview with Kris ‘Tanto’ Paronto, John ‘Tig’ Tiegen and Mark ‘Oz’ Geist

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 14th, 2016 - Interviews

“[The] sacrifices that Ambassador Chris Stevens made, that Sean Smith made, that Ty and Glen made, for someone to take this story and turn it into politics, turn it into something it wasn’t, it made us mad. We got together and talked as a team and tried to figure out a way to do this. We knew if we just went to the media and said, hey, this is wrong, it would only get spun again. We needed to do something more concrete.”

FLASHBACK FRIDAY: “Attack the Block” – Interview with Joe Cornish and John Boyega

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 18th, 2015 - Interviews

With “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opening today I thought it would be fun to revisit a 2011 interview I conducted with one of the film’s biggest new stars, talented newcomer John Boyega. While I don’t intend to run these “Flashback Fridays” on a weekly basis, I do think they’ll be a fun way to look back at the Moviefreak library in ways that are both entertaining and informative. Here’s hoping you all enjoy.

“I love this movie. I love it so much. I like the father-daughter story because it is representative to what so much of our relationship was like. I love how they’ve depicted Trumbo. I love Bryan’s performance. There is nothing about this movie that I can think of that I don’t like.”

“Burying the Ex” – Interview with director Joe Dante

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 29th, 2015 - Interviews

“It’s a measure of a pretty good movie, isn’t it? If it’s a movie that you like and you go back and watch it again sometimes you’re a little disappointed because there isn’t much more there than what there was when you saw it the first time. But, sometimes, maybe a lot of times, it surprises you, and you see things in the movie that you didn’t notice the first time, you start seeing things that no one, not even the filmmakers, could have known were going to be a part of the zeitgeist at the time, that those elements would still ring true ten or twenty years later. I’ve been lucky enough to make a lot of those pictures.”
