Note: I am not thrilled about how this video looks. I had a last minute replacement on camera and the results are unfortunate.

That said, the content of the interview and the subject herself were a great and happy surprise to me. I found her very honest, her story compelling, and her perspective on her work completely refreshing. I am particularly intrigued by her sense of a shared perspective with Meryl Streep, more naturally similar than the glamor machine around actresses might have you think.

So my apologies for the rather harsh light and bad camera angle. But i hope you’ll take a listen nonetheless.

Postering a disappearing IRON LADY

While it’s not the first horizontal/vertical mix-up on a one-sheet this month (see Janus Film’s reissue poster for Godard’s Weekend), at second glance, this is the most disturbing. Turning topsy-turvy the Houses of Parliament may resemble the streaking of a minor Gerhard Richter painting, but more readily suggest the loss of memory and personality by Thatcher as her Alzheimer’s grows worse. And what streaks away? A mind for all things governmental. Eeeesh.
