Interview: David O. Russell Talks Incest and Music in ‘The Fighter,’ Plus ‘Uncharted’ And Other Projects From The Past
Posted on Sunday, February 20th, 2011 by David Chen
As I mentioned yesterday, I recently had the opportunity to speak with David O. Russell, who directed The Fighter, which was my favorite film of 2010. We chatted about a variety of topics, including themes of incest in his work, his musical choices, plus some of the other projects he’s worked on in the past and will be working on in the future. Thanks to everyone who submitted awesome questions for this live Q&A!
Russell seemed like an incredibly cool dude, who’s had somewhat of a rough time of it in Hollywood until recently. I wish him the best on his next projects. Below is the audio of our conversation. Hit the jump for the full transcript, which has been edited for clarity.
