Call Me By Your Name will win awards next year! It’s beautiful, tender, funny and Luca Guadagnino I think, has made one of the most stunning and honest love stories ever. I hope i’ve done some justice in trying to get to the heart of the importance of music in his films, as i’m such a huge fan.

Episode 61: Michael Winterbottom

I don’t know why but I was a little bit nervous about chatting to Michael Winterbottom. Maybe just because i’m such a big fan. Those nerves were very quickly put to rest as Michael was a total joy to chat to. Warm, funny and so very talented, I hope you enjoy our chat.

Episode 58: Denis Villneuve

It’s fair to say I am a huge fan of Denis, it’s also fair to say he was the prefect choice to direct Blade Runner 2049. Here we talk about his long standing relationship with composer Johan Johansson but also how for this particular project, it was necessary to turn to the expertise of Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch.

Episode 58: Nancy Myers

I still can’t quite believe we managed to get time with Nancy, who was here supporting the release of ‘Home Again,’ her daughters directorial debut. Having been oscar nominated for her screenwriting debut with Private Benjamin back in 1980, since then Nancy has been a pretty important part in Hollywood history. A dream to chat to, so warm, generous and fun. I hope you enjoy our chat.

If every week involved getting to chat to Stanley Tucci, it would be a pretty sweet life. A man who can deliver on both sides of the camera he has most recently Writen and Directed, ‘Final Protrait,’ a film about a short period in the life of artists Alberto Giacommetti.

Episode 54: Steven Soderbergh

Thank god he thought again about retiring from making films. Steven Soderbergh is back with the brilliantly raucous and funny Logan Lucky. He’s made so many fantastic films and always with a level of social commentary, layers to peel back from your initial interpretation of uhis w movies. It was a real thrill to get time with Steven to take a step into his world and discuss music. I hope you enjoy.

Episode 53: Doug Liman

American Made is his new film which sees him team up, once again with Tom Cruise. I think they bring out the best in each other and I might have told him that during this interview. Doug Liman has been responsible for so many moments in my film watching history fro Swingers to Go, Bourne to more recently The Wall, he’s unpredictable and I think it’s fair to say a non-conformist. I see this as a snap shot into world, I hope there can be more.
