Movie Media

not sure there is a good thread for this kind of stuff, thinking bout film(maker) profiles in papers, mags, televisuals, etc. 

anyone read the recent Times piece on Kathryn Bigelow?  it even mentions The Loveless :)
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

Doesn't really offer much insight but this thread shouldn't die.

Agreed.

But that clip needs more visuals from the best movie ever and less way-too-close-ups of Mr. Potato Head. Also, major spoilers for anyone who hasn't seen it yet!

I don't know if this qualifies, but here's a series of video essays (by Matt Noller Zeitz) on Michael Mann, tracing his style and themes through his films and TV work.

Still need to watch that. You should post the the link for the ones on Wes Anderson too.

This is a really great interview with Claire Denis. It's mostly based around 35 Rhums, and so I'm not sure how it reads if you haven't seen it yet, but I enjoyed it a lot, having read it both before and after seeing the film.

Great thread. Thanks for sharing those interviews and articles. I'll make sure to contribute if I find stuff.
