Last week, I teased an interview with Steve Coogan. That probably won't happen at this point. Which sucks because I got pretty hyped about it myself. But he's starting a new film, which means he doesn't have time for this guy. *Bronx cheer* Let's go to the weekly links, shall we?
Hello. Been a while, I know. I won't say that I'm back for good since I've made similar promises before, and broken them. So let's dispense with the formalities, and get to this week's links.
First up is my Esquire interview with The Handmaiden director Chan-wook Park about storyboards, classic musical, and violence.
Next, there's my Village Voice cap about Anthology Film Archives now-ongoing Lucio Fulci retrospective.
And my RogerEbert.com interview with Creepy helmer Kiyoshi Kurosawa about location-scouting, generic expectations, and the wind.
Then there's my three-star RogerEbert.com review of 31, Rob Zombie's latest horror film. And, just in case you missed it, my (and co-author Matt Zoller Seitz's) Village Voice oral history of The Thing (1982), featuring interviews with Wilford Brimley, John Carpenter, David Clennon, Keith David, and Richard Masur.
