Hi Film Folk.
Over it? Great!
Jordan has an interesting past. Allegedly forbidden to watch television and only allowed to attend the cinema twice a month, he found solace in literature – so, this Fun Friday may consist of other art forms as well as “Favourite Films”.
Here is Neil Jordan‘s list of influences:
– New German Cinema / Italian Cinema – His clear debt to European art cinema can be traced back to film debut “Angel” (and first collaboration with Stephen Rea, who will become a fixture in the director’s films).
–Literature – Jordan clearly likes to sit down and get stuck into a good book, having made a string of adaptations. Authors include Graham Greene (f0r his “The End Of The Affair”), Angela Carter (for “The Company Of Wolves”) and Anne Rice novels – “Interview With the Vampire”.
-And, as if it wasn’t obvious from both his old and new work, he is a highly dedicated fan of the spooky: “I love the horror genre!”
“Byzantium” opens in UK cinemas nationwide today (31 May 2013).The Film Doctor Team Check out our other FUN FRIDAYS. Check out our SERVICES.
