David Stratton and Margaret Pomeranz travelled to the Gold Coast late last year to pick up a special award from the Australian International Movie Convention, recognising their contribution to the Australian film industry..Before picking up their gongs, the pair spoke to If about life after 'At The Movies', the recent Aussie films they.ve liked (and those they haven.t) and the 'Wake in Fright' remake.
What are you doing on the Gold Coast?
D: We.re here because we.re getting an award. Which is sort of nice. I always remember at the Berlin Film Festival many years ago — maybe I should say this tonight — where they gave a lifetime achievement award to Billy Wilder. Wilder came on stage and said: .the problem is that a lifetime achievement award is like hemorrhoids — every old asshole gets one in the end..
M: I don.t »

In our conversation, Paul Schneider tells of the importance Jan Chapman and Jane Campion's The Piano had, working with Christophe Honoré and Andrew Dominik, and meeting Nick Cave during The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. We started out with Métamorphoses and Les Bien-aimés, La La Land and Jacques Demy, onto the influence of Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine in Billy Wilder's The Apartment.
Paul Schneider, All The Real Girls director David Gordon Green, Loving and Midnight Special director Jeff Nichols, David Lachapelle, and Ma director Celia Rowlson-Hall - all went to the North Carolina School of the Arts.

Over breakfast, I spoke with Paul Schneider on The Daughter and how producer Jan Chapman and Jane Campion's The Piano inspired him to go to film school. We also discussed his work with Christophe Honoré, the influence of Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine in Billy Wilder's The Apartment, Andrew Dominik's The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, meeting Nick Cave, and watching Kelly Macdonald and Ewan McGregor in Danny Boyle's Trainspotting to develop a Scottish accent for Bright Star.

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast.
On today’s show, a Golden Globes postmortem as “La La Land” swept its categories Sunday night and surprise wins for Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Nocturnal Animals”) and Isabelle Huppert (“Elle”) were in store. Plus, somehow, some way, Fox’s “Deadpool” isn’t going away this season, having now added a Producers Guild nomination to its unlikely tally.
Later on (20:43), I’m talking to director one of the toasts of the season, Casey Affleck. Beginning with a Sundance bow for “Manchester by the Sea,” picking back up with a tribute at the Telluride Film Festival and now on the cusp of an Oscar nomination for his work on the film (which has brought him over 30 critics awards for best actor), the year has been one Affleck won’t likely soon forget.
For more, listen to the latest episode of “Playback” below. Check back next week for a new episode, »

It’s the New Year, and while we have lots of cool interviews to share with you over the next twelve months here at Lrm, there was one great interview last year that kind of got away from us, and that was our very long chat with screenwriter Taylor Sheridan.
You may know Sheridan from his acting work on Sons of Anarchy, but he left that show to become a screenwriter and his first two screenplays, for Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario and the more recent Hell or High Water, have received a lot of well-warranted attention for their sharp writing and characterizations. Maybe that’s why the respective directors were able to get the likes of Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro, Jeff Bridges and Chris Pine on board.
