George Lucas is Creepy Shocker

The Hathor Legacy have an interesting (and disturbing) piece on Lucas and Spielberg's ideas for Marion Ravenwood. This kind of thing is why I read feminist film theory. I know not all directors like to imagine their heroes having sex with children but these guys really set my alarm bells ringing. The article can be found at The Hathor Legacy

Mary Harron in The Guardian

The Guardian has interviewed Mary Harron in today's film supplement here. They don't mention The Notorious Betty Page which is disappointing but the article covers American Psycho and I Shot Andy Warhol, although briefly.

Birds Eye View Film Festival are showing two of Harron's films and having a Q&A with her on Sunday. I wish I could attend as she's a very interesting director.
