Video Interview…Director Kevin Macdonald on the Intensity and Authenticity of ‘Black Sea’

Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland) takes the helm for Focus Features’ ultra-tense submarine thriller Black Sea.

Now one thing to […]

Video Interview…’Calvary’ Writer/Director John Michael McDonagh

This week we got to speak with writer/director John Michael McDonagh about Fox Searchlight’s Calvary. It’s a fascinating character study and a pensive thriller that plays like a modernized Western.

Video Interview…’Dom Hemingway’ Writer/Director Richard Shepard

Director Richard Shepard’s wild imagination allows him to write skewed or jaded characters that are as enticing as they are off-putting.
