Talking Movies: Contemporary World Filmmakers in Interview | Jason Wood
11 posts
"A culmination of more than ten years of interviews, Talking Movies is a collection of conversations with some of the most audacious and respected contemporary filmmakers of the present generation. Several of these in-depth discussions have already featured in publications such as Vertigo and Enthusiasm, and there are over fifteen interviews exclusive to this book. The names included here are those at the cutting edge of cinematic style the world over, those whose work has defined how images are processed and appreciated by modern audiences. Directors frankly discussing their craft and the social, political and technological forces that inform it including Claire Denis and Bertrand Tavernier (France), Guillermo del Toro, Alejandro Gonzlez Irritu and Carlos Reygadas (Mexico) Hal Hartley and Richard Linklater (USA), Stephen Frears and Andrew Ktting (UK), Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Turkey), Atom Egoyan (Canada), Lucrecia Martel (Argentina) and John Hillcoat and Nick Cave (Australia)."--Publisher description.

Saw this on the Gram. So accurate! I am such a book to movie snob.

madamereadsalot1 I'm literally at a bar discussing how much better a book was vs the movie ... 😂 12mo
KatieDid927 This is also me. 12mo
Erinreadsthebooks Me, constantly: "You know that's a book, right?" "Did you know it's actually a book they made into a movie?" "Yep, such a good book." ? 12mo

1. The Hunger Games.
2. Depends, but usually the original cover is better.
3. I believe it is going to be made into a movie, so I'd like to see a movie adaptation of Bird Box.
4. @OrangeMooseReads, guessing you probably already did this, but if not then consider yourself tagged.

⚡️ A Clockwork Orange
⚡️ So many.. Clockwork, The Dark Crystal, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Wizard of Oz, Guys and Dolls, anything Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers. I can go on and on with this list
⚡️Ever After. I don‘t know why but it‘s my go-to when I need noise.
⚡️Sometimes I want candy, sometimes I want popcorn, sometimes I want both.
