While Nicolas Winding Refn‘s bromance with Ryan Gosling is well documented, he also logs serious time with enfant terrible Gaspar Noé. If you ever wanted to get in a room with the pair, now is the time, as a great talk between them has surfaced.
Conducted at the Danish Film Institute last year, the video is a fascinating, fun half-hour conversation between the pair. Refn talks about the tedium he felt shooting the car chases in “Drive” and how Christina Hendricks saved an otherwise dull scene, while Noé reveals his problems trying to get Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel to shoot a sequence he wanted for “Irreversible.” They also talk about the hoops they have to go through in raising financing for their films, with Noé revealing how he got funding for his upcoming, explicit “Love” with just a few posters. It’s great stuff, so watch below.
