Exclusive Interview with McLaren director Roger Donaldson

29 May 2017 2:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Risker chats with McLaren director Roger Donaldson

“Every movie is different” says filmmaker Roger Donaldson. “There are always so many things to keep you interested and so I’m not bored yet.” The story of racing driver, constructor and engineer Bruce McLaren has become the primary focus of Donaldson. It is one that has seen him transition away from a long series of narrative features including: Cocktail, Species, Dante’s Peak and The Recruit, to direct documentary McLaren. While the Cold War drama Thirteen Days indicates his interest in real life stories, his 1971 documentary short Burt Munro: Offerings to the God of Speed, and 2005 narrative feature The World’s Fastest Indian starring Anthony Hopkins as Burt Munro, connects merges his three interests of life, fiction and racing.

In conversation with Flickering Myth, Donaldson discussed a career in film that has embraced change, yet is one underpinned by the stability of his choices. »

Colin Farrell Re-Teams with Yorgos Lanthimos for a New Amazon Series

22 March 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Why the Greek director’s tragicomic sensibility is perfect for the subject matter.

Not to be outdone by Netflix’s upcoming string of auteur dramas, Amazon Studios just announced that director Yorgos Lanthimos will be reteaming with The Lobster star Colin Farrell for an upcoming original series. The topic? The Iran-Contra Affair. For those of you (like me) who are too young to remember, the so-called Iran-Contra Affair was a scandal that occurred during Ronald Reagan’s presidency, in which administration officials conspired to sell weapons to Iran (against whom there was an arms embargo) in order to funnel the profits to a right-wing Nicaraguan army known as the Contras (to whom Congress had forbidden funding). The initial plan was to use said profits to negotiate the release of several hostages held by Hezbollah, but then Colonel Oliver North got involved and devised a plan to use the money to also fund the Contras.
