Festival Reviews

Born: August 13, 1955 in Cheam, Surrey, England, UK

[on his time with British current-affairs TV show ‘World in Action’] A festival of puerile self-importance, intense paranoia, fiddled expenses and brilliant creativity.
By the time I’d done Bloody Sunday (2002) I felt I reached the end of a chapter. I could feel it. I wanted to try something new, something different. Then, to my amazement, “Bloody Sunday” won lots of theatrical prizes, the audience award at Sundance, and then, to my even greater amazement, I had the opportunity to make a film in Hollywood. I mean, you wouldn’t think, looking at my films, oh, there’s a guy who’s going to make films in Hollywood.
