Q: What's the year's best film so far?
A: Neil Marshall's Doomsday. A political action thriller packed with substance, lucid in tone, and confident in execution.
Q: What's the year's worst film so far?
A: The horrendous Other Boleyn Girl. Tacky, trashy and repellent.
Q: Will Sally Hawkins be nominated for an Oscar, and if so, is she worthy?
A: It's a signature Mike Leigh Actress performance. Like Blethyn, some are likely to find her annoying, but there's undeniable depth there. At the moment, I'd say yes. And it's Oscar worthy stuff in my eyes. Loved her.
Q: Are you going to see Indiana Jones 4?
A: Haha. Not even for Shia.
Q: Which film are you most looking forward to this year?
A: Synecdoche, New York!
And a few words about the extraordinary impact that the year of 2008 has had upon me thus far...
I'm actually looking forward to seeing the work of Clint Eastwood and Sean Penn ;-)
