The Interviews, Goddesses and Craftsmen Alike

A big "thank you" to readers who commented on the recent spate of interviews here at The Film Experience. We don't do too many of them but you've been quite complimentary about the ones you do get. If time allows and other variables improve this year we'll do more for 2011. But in case you missed any of the interviews covering the 2010 film year, here's the rundown:


Jenny Beavan, Costume Designer, (The King's Speech)
Roger Deakins
, Cinematographer (True Grit)
Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter, Editors (The Social Network)
Eve Stewart, Production Designer (The King's Speech)
Jacki Weaver, Actress (Animal Kingdom)

...FROM THE OLD BLOG: Four of Nathaniel's 100 favorite actresses in one calendar year? Too rich! And a couple of talented men for good measure.

Kirsten Dunst, Actress (All Good Things)
Alexander Desplat, Composer (The Ghost Writer, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)
Javier Fuentes-Leon, Director (Contracorriente aka Undertow)
Juliette Lewis, Actress (Conviction)
Patricia Clarkson, Actress (Cairo Time)
Julianne Moore, Actress (The Kids Are All Right)

Beloveds: Juliette, Patty, God and Kiki

Who should we pursue relentlessly in 2011 until they're on the phone or grabbing a cup of joe?

Which Old Hollywood legend would you like to hear from?

I want to see an interview between you and Hilary Swank. See what happens. I bet you come back best friends.

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWalter

Do I even need to post this? LA STREEP!

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJake

I know you're an actressexual, but clearly- Jake Gyllenhaal. Oh, and you need to invite me to come chat with him as well.

I'd also take Meryl.

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEvan

Nat, not that this has anything to do with this post, but do you happen to watch The Good Wife? This second season is amazing and has quickly become my favorite running television show.

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSteve

Wait, you want us to say whoever we want or be more practical?
Either way:

Streep, Rowlands, Foster, Spielberg , Todd Haynes, Swinton (what happened with that one?), Mulligan, Knightely, Michelle Williams, Dench.

OK, I could go on forever but I'm sticking to those for now.
If I had to pick only two, they would be Streep and Swinton. And if it's Streep, show her (or tell her the title so that she'll find it) the awesome video you made for her 60th birthday!

Steve -- i don't watch that, no. I saw the pilot and didn't like it so i never really investigated.

James -- i *almost* had a Swinton face-to-face this year but it got cancelled [sniffle]

Walter -- true story: i turned down a Swank interview this year cuz i was too terrified after everything i've written. Ooops.

RM -- i would love that. you know i would.

February 16, 2011 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

Legends: Ian McKellen, Ewan McGregor, Peter O'toole, Ewan McGregor, Robert DeNiro, Ewan McGregor, Shirley McLaine, Ewan McGregor, Lauren Bacall, Ewan McGregor, Jane Fonda... I guess you get the pattern.

I love the interviews anyway, even when I'm not a fan of the interviewees.

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteriggy

Lisa Kudrow, Imelda Staunton, Winona Ryder, Charlotte Rampling, Christina Ricci, and Streep of course.

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Outlaw

Nicole Kidman.

That is all.

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJenn

You pointed out in an earlier post that the 10th Anniversary of Moulin Rouge is this year. I think that means it is time to get an interview with Nicole Kidman... :-)

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKim

Shirley MacLaine

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterhcu

Dianne Wiest!

Also Mark Ruffalo. And Tom Hardy. Kissing...

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCaden

Oh, there are so many! Some of my picks include Emma Thompson, Ryan Gosling, Lesley Manville, Sally Hawkins, Jeremy Renner, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Stanley Tucci, Emily Blunt, and Vera Farmiga (in addition to several of the people already mentioned)

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMatthewRusk

Oooh! Just thought of this one, though I know she's semi-retired, but: Jessica Harper? Luciano Tovoli? Mark Bradshaw?

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWalter

Meryl Streep, naturally. But also Terri Garr, Jane Alexander, Piper Laurie, Faye Dunaway and Gena Rowlands.

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbrandz

The Most Difficult Get – Shelley Duvall
Very Open If You Catch Her – Isabella Rossellini
Please Make Me A Consultant – Kathy Bates

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commenter/3rtfu11

I was going to suggest Swank...hahaha! Say yes next time.

One of the acting nominees would be great...preferably a man to balance out Jacki Weaver. Javier Bardem, maybe?

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAndrew R.

Aw, I think Swank is a sweetie though...I think I just have a soft spot for her now after seeing Boys Don't Cry recently for the first time.

Definitely Nicole Kidman for the Moulin Rouge 10 year anniversary.

Christina Ricci would be really interesting since she's such an underrated talent.
Ryan Gosling.

February 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPhilip

My votes would go for Judi Dench, Ellen Burstyn, and Vanessa Redgrave. Would really love for you to interview Marisa Tomei, since we're wishing and all...
