DP/30: Drive, actor Albert Brooks

We are thrilled to be able to bring you a half hour chat with the legendary Albert Brooks. We shot this just yesterday, post-SAG, pre-Globes.

Other recent interviews include the director of Drive, Nicolas Winding Refn, a pair of animated directors (Kung Fu Panda 2 and Rio), almost a full hour with the director and the writer of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, plus The Brothers Dardennes, whose The Kid With The Bike is grabbing awards and nominations all over the country.

You see someone and you’re like, She’s really hot, I want to be naked with her. And then you’re naked with her and you’re like, Jesus, she’s in my —-ing room and we’re naked. The idea of that—of just —-ing somebody—became silly to me.”
