London Film Festival: Press conference for THE IDES OF MARCH.
Talk with Woody Harrelson on his career. He was on top form. Is in town for RAMPART - a corrupt cop thriller. An excellent performance, but in a film that feels like a pale imitator of THE SHIELD.
The young Magneto. Press conference for his excellent new film SHAME. It's about sex addiction, intimacy issues and self-hatred.
A Q&A for the excellent TYRANNOSAUR. A photo I took of scary actor Eddie Marsan. Fucking hell, I hope he was looking past me.

I am well aware how difficult it is to make a film, put on a stage play, create a television show, write a novel, let alone make something of note. (That appreciation doesn’t stop me from having high standards though.)
