The Film Programme - 04/11/2011
Francine Stock talks to three directors. With John Landis on his passion for movie monsters, Miranda July on her film The Future, and Philip Seymour Hoffman on Jack Goes Boating.
Francine Stock meets three of the biggest stars in American cinema -- Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Landis and Miranda July. Philip Seymour Hoffman will be discussing his debut as a director, Jack Goes Boating and the challenge of playing a man whose integrity is matched by his diffidence. Miranda July offers a few tips on how to navigate the charming but quirky world of The Future where cats speak and time stands still; and John Landis - the director of An American Werewolf in London and Michael Jackson's Thriller video -- explains why he's always been fascinated by monsters in the movies. The critic, Andrew Collins, will also be popping in to evaluate the nominations for this year's British Independent Film Awards - and what they say about the health of our film industry.
