First, hey, I'm sorry. In the midst of what was a busy week last week, I really didn't realize that I had posted the regular Thursday edition of MTFB/FAC on Wednesday until that cat had been out of the bag for a good long while, so I just let it stand. Maybe, I'll get this put together a little more like normal this week. Anyway, sorry for the 24 hour early post this last week.
MORE DIRECTORS TALK: 'ANOMALISA", "SPOTLIGHT" AND "SON OF SAUL"
Charlie Kaufman, co-director and co-writer of the stop motion animated Telluride sensation "Anomalisa" had a couple of prominent interviews pop up this week for The New York Times and The Playlist (Indiewire) and I have included their links here:
Additionally, National Public Radio talked to "Spotlight" director and co-writer Tom McCarthy.
And, friend of MTFB, Alex Billington/FirstShowing.net interviewed first time director, Laszlo Nemes, whose "Son of Saul" was red hot at Cannes and Telluride and has to be considered the favorite for the Best Foreign Language Oscar. That interview is linked here:
