Bad Actors

Act of KillingThis week’s NOW features an interview with a director who’s made a genuinely revolutionary work of art, and another who made a movie about a snail that races in the Indy 500.

The former is Joshua Oppenheimer, whose remarkable documentary The Act of Killing is a fascinating work of both journalism and psychology; the latter is David Soren, whose CG feature Turbo gave me the chance to use “crazy-bananapants” in print.

I also spoke with Patrick Wilson about reuniting with Insidious director James Wan for The Conjuring, and how one goes about playing a real-life ghostbuster. You know, serious actor talk. Enjoy it!
