Regular readers of the blog will likely have already caught up with episodes of “Scene By Scene,” Mark Cousins‘ former BBC series focusing on various filmmakers. We’ve already featured episodes centered on David Lynch, Woody Allen, Brian De Palma and Bernardo Bertoucci. If you haven’t seen them, they’re well worth a spin, and now comes another that’s definitely worth setting aside an hour for.
The 2000 broadcast of “Scene By Scene” featuring Roman Polanski has made its way online, and as always, it’s a fascinating look at the filmmaker, who also participates in the TV doc. The show takes a journey through his films (Polanski remarks that he hasn’t seen “The Tenant” in a while) with some very insightful comments from the man himself, in what proves to be a pretty wide-ranging chat all around. This is definitely one you’ll want to make time for, so click below or bookmark it and make some time for it this weekend. [The Seventh Art]
