Under the Skin: why did this chilling masterpiece take a decade?

7 March 2014 2:06 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Director Jonathan Glazer talks about how the film – which stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien driving round Glasgow in a van – came to obsess him

In early 2001, Jonathan Glazer began planning his next film. The director was then 35, a wildly sought-after maker of music videos and adverts who had just released his first film, the singular gangster movie Sexy Beast. His next was to be an adaptation of Michel Faber's cult novel Under the Skin. The project ended up on ice. Work didn't start until 2004.

Ten years later, Under the Skin is finished, and Glazer is in a publicists' office in Soho, a well-preserved Londoner with a thicket of dark hair, tall enough to verge on the looming. Having spent almost all his 40s getting the film made, he must feel like a different man from the one who began it?

"Well. Hmm. I … God. That's a teaser." He stalls. »

Exclusive Clip from 8 Minutes Idle with Tom Hughes, Ophelia Lovibond & Antonia Thomas

14 February 2014 3:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Arriving in cinemas and on demand today, Mark Simon Hewis’ 8 Minutes Idle promises to be a charming comedy perfectly timed for the Valentine’s festivities over the weekend, with an element of office romance thrown in for good measure.

Following the rather brilliant first trailer we saw last month, we’ve now got an exclusive new clip from the film to share in tandem with its release, teasing a little of the comedy we can expect. Antonia Thomas’ retorts, in particular, are just genius.

8 Minutes Idle is a contemporary comedy adapted from the award‐winning novel by Bristol author Matt Thorne. This is the story of Dan, early 20s, who gets kicked out of his home by his mother and not knowing who to turn to ends up packing up his most prized possessions and his cat and moves into his office, a Call Centre.

Movie Review - 8 Minutes Idle (2012)

13 February 2014 2:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

8 Minutes Idle, 2012.

Directed by Mark Simon Hewis.

Starring Tom Hughes, Ophelia Lovibond, Montserrat Lombard, Antonia Thomas, Jack Ashton, Pippa Haywood and Paul Kaye.

Synopsis:

Dan loves the ‘easy life’ of a call-centre operator in Bristol, but unwelcome changes are forced upon him when his mother kicks him out of the family home. He also loves colleague Teri, but has more pressing concerns in the form of terrifying boss Alice, who has designs on her confused employee.

8 Minutes Idle has had a painful route to the big screen. Funding issues have plagued the production, and though the movie had already been shot the producers had to turn to Kickstarter to give it a final push over the line when original distributors Revolver met their maker. After such a palaver to get it out, it would be a pity if it turned out not to have been worth the bother.
