Sometimes meeting a celebrity seems intimidating. Not sure why, but it occasionally does. In the case of Samuel L. Jackson, it was pretty good until he entered the room, and he looked pissed. Suddenly, it seemed like this roundtable session wasn’t going to be particularly fun.
This past week I was given the opportunity to participate in a collection roundtable sessions with John Boorman, director of the soon-to-be released In My Country, as well as its two stars, Juliette Binoche and Samuel L. Jackson. The first of these interviews I’ll be presenting this week is Boorman, the man behind such classics as Deliverance, Hope and Glory and The General. And of course there’s Excaliber.
