Interviews: Waters, Lynch, Haley, Gondry, et al.

john-waters.jpgNerve gives its readers a crack at that incorrigible rapscallion – John Waters, in a Q & A session. Plus, NYT profiles the director and his selections for the love song compilation – “A Date With John Waters”. Via Largehearted Boy.

— GreenCine segments out a video Q & A with David Lynch on the topics of digital video, Hollywood, and distribution in the wake of Inland Empire.

— Video: The First Ones – Jake Paltrow extracts answers from Cate Blanchett, Brad Bitt, Helen Mirren, Abbie Cornish, Ken Watanabe, Penelope Cruz, and Leonardo DiCaprio about the films that had an early impact on their lives. Also, companion piece Great Performers – glamour shots (some not so glamorous) of all of the above, in addition to Ryan Gosling, Maggie Cheung, Forest Whitaker, Paul Dano, Christian Bale, Rinko Kikuchi [!], Gael Garcia Bernal, Sacha Baron Cohen, Annette Bening, more. Via Risky Biz.

— Video: David Poland lunches with former Bad News Bear, Oscar nominee (Little Children) Jackie Earle Haley to talk life after child-star acting, reality TV, and his triumphant return to the big screen after 15 years.

Premiere with Florian von Henckel Donnersmarck, director of foreign language Oscar front-runner The Lives of Others.

— A tip from reader Jane – Part 1 of 2 from The Guardian and Michel Gondry on how early Super 8 days and the video for his first band Oui Oui paved the way for collaborations with Bjork (in house favorite – Joga), Charlie Kaufman, and really, anyone else he fancies moving forward. Part 2 – more back and forth on his recent works. Bonus: a top ten of Gondry video moments – both short films and music videos, found by Aurix.

— Finally, while we’re discussing The Guardian, don’t overlook their interview archive, featuring Gael Garcia Bernal – duo Pedro Almodóvar and Penélope Cruz and many more, including Lynne Ramsay, director of Ratcatcher and Morvern Caller, whose name simply does not come up often enough within discussions of the younger cliques of filmmaking talent.
