“You know what happens to nosy people? Hah?”
This week, for the first time, somebody picks a stone classic for Someone Else’s Movie. That classic is Roman Polanski’s Chinatown, and that somebody is writer-director John Maclean, whose film Slow West opens in Canada on Friday.
(Slow West is really good, by the way. Here, check out Maclean’s short film Pitch Black Heist. It makes a nice appetizer.)
Maclean started out as a musician before he was a filmmaker; you may recognize him from The Beta Band. Which makes him the first guest on the show to have opened for Radiohead.
