Genre (crossing) directors

Partially broadcast 23/07/10 as part of an episode of I’m ready for my close-up on Resonance 104.4 FM

Alex Fitch talks to the directors of two recent genre crossing movies – Garth Jennings and Park Chan-Wook – about their films Son of Rambow and I’m a Cyborg (but that’s okay). Alex and Garth also talk about low-fi and hi-fi approaches to special effects making, plus hitting Mos Def with a plank of wood on the set of the Hitchhiker’s Guide of the Galaxy while Alex also talks to Park (via translator Sinae Lew and actor Philip Hayden) about themes of pop culture in the latter’s movies, such as Oldboy, and how the suppression of freedom in Korea influenced his subject matter.

  1. Reality Check: Genre (crossing) directors, Autumn ‘08 « “Reality Check” & “Panel Borders” reblogged this and added:

    […] To kick off the second series of our fortnightly podcasts, it’s the second of our twice yearly looks at directors who mix a variety of genres in their work with intriguing results. Chris Patmore talks to Tarsem Singh, director of The Cell, about The Fall, his stylish homage to silent movies which combines elements of Wuxia, cowboy films and the Arabian nights to dazzling effect… Also, Alex Fitch talks to Paul W.S. Anderson about his reimagining of Roger Corman’s Death Race which sees the original satirical road race relocated to a futristic prison yard.
