Thirteen original career interviews.
In this collection of recent, in-depth conversations, I engage thirteen creative filmmakers from Britain, Ireland, the US, Canada and New Zealand in wide-ranging, stimulating discussions that cover their entire body of work, how they interact with other creative personnel, and the state of today's film industry. The emphasis is on artists working outside the mainstream and generally acknowledged to be independent filmmakers. Their connection to the major Hollywood film studios is also explored. Personal Visions contains interviews with Neil Jordan (The Crying Game,The Butcher Boy), Michael Radford (Il Postino, 1984), Nicholas Hytner (The Madness of King George), Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter), Alan Rudolph (Choose Me, Afterglow, Breakfast of Champions), Terence Davies (The Long Day Closes, Distant Voices,Still Lives), Anna Campion (Loaded), Philip Ridley (The Passion of Darkly Noon, The Reflecting Skin), Richard Linklater (Slacker, Dazed and Confused), John McNaughton (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer), Benjamin Ross (The Young Poisoner's Handbook, RKO 281), Michael Almereyda (Nadja, Hamlet), and Alison Maclean (Crush, Jesus' Son). This is the only collection of its kind to probe deeply into the process of making films with such a wide range of filmmakers. It offers all those who care about the state of current cinema invaluable insight into the creative process.
