    Marrakech Interview: Tomas Alfredson On "Slow Cooking," The 'Tinker Tailor' Sequel And Staying In Sweden

    A little like being told not to think of an elephant, when the small group of press who got to meet Tomas Alfredson at the Marrakech Film Festival was asked in advance not to ask about his next project, it was pretty much all any of us could think about. The “Let the Right One In” and “Tinker Tailor...

    Marrakech Interview: Nicolas Winding Refn On Disliking Vikings, Realism & What He Learned From 'Fear X'

    It’s telling, and maybe also a little paradoxical, that of the huge array of Nordic talent assembled onstage at the Scandinavian tribute last week at the Marrakech Film Festival, the honor itself was accepted (on the delegation’s behalf) by Nicolas Winding Refn.

    Marrakech Fest Review: Dark, Stylised 'The Gambler' From New Director Ignas Jonynas

    A feature debut (we’re not counting the portmanteau “Yolki,” co-directed with Timur Bekmambetov, among others) so self-assured as to really only ever be marred by show-offiness, Latvian/Lithuanian co-production "The Gambler," which plays in competition at the Marrakech Film Festival, marks director ...

    From the opening moments of “Ida,” the Polish film from director Pawel Pawlikowski—that plays in competition at the Marrakech Film Festival, but is already trailing awards from TIFF (FIPRESCI critics award) and Warsaw (Grand Prix), having also elicited a rave from our own Oli Lyttelton when he saw i...

    Noomi Rapace Talks ‘Animal Rescue’ & ‘Child 44’ With Tom Hardy, Tommy Wirkola's 'Monday?' & Much More

    These last few years have been a wild ride for Noomi Rapace, but sitting down to talk with her at the Marrakech Film Festival this week, we found her refreshingly down to earth, giving the impression of someone who is fully aware of the lucky hand she’s been dealt and is not afraid to work hard to s...

    Here Are Seven Directing Lessons From 'The Immigrant' Filmmaker James Gray

    James Gray began his Marrakech Film Festival Master Class with a self-deprecatory warning to everyone in attendance at the Salles des Ambassadeurs at the Palais de Congress, including moderator Scott Foundas. "I don't think I have anything to say," he claimed, before embarking on an earnest, enterta...

    In a nice note of symmetry to our 2013, one of our first interviews of the year at the Goteborg Film Festival in Sweden, was with the Danish director of “A Hijacking,” Tobias Lindholm, and today we found ourselves in December in Marrakech getting to speak with him again. Lindholm is here as part of ...

    Marrakech Film Festival Masterclass: Bruno Dumont Gives Tips on Editing, Directing Actors and More

    Six weeks after his latest film, "Camille Claudel 1915," received a theatrical release in the U.S., and just a few days after John Waters listed that and another of his films ("Hors Satan") on his 2013 Top 10 list for Artforum, Bruno Dumont was given the royal treatment at the 13th annual Marrakech ...

    Marrakech Interview: Kore-eda Hirokazu On Technique, Spielberg's Remake Of 'Like Father Like Son' & More

    In person, Japanese director Kore-eda Hirokazu is gentle and thoughtful, with a frequent warm, shy smile--of the directors we've met, he perhaps comes closest to being the true embodiment of his films. But his humility, which was even touched on during his introduction at the Marrakech International...
