What better way to prepare for the Oscars® could there possibly be than getting inside the heads of three top filmmakers?
El Rey Network will be running four episodes of El Rey Presents: The Directors Chair prior to February 28’s Oscar® Awards show – Quentin Tarantino, George Miller (Pictured above) and Sylvester Stallone engaged in conversation by Robert Rodriguez.
The Director’s Chair Red Carpet Marathon begins at 4:30 (3:30C) and continues through to 8:30 (7:30) on February 28th. Follow the jump for details and teasers.
Michael Mann might be a hard act to follow, but El Rey Network Presents: The Director’s Chair has just the right choice in George Miller (pictured above with Charlize Theron). August’s second edition of The Director’s Chair will feature the only director to ever create franchises based on a post-apocalypse, vengeance seeking former cop and dancing penguins.
George Miller will be in the titular chair on El Rey Network Presents: The Director’s Chair on Sunday, August 30th. Follow the jump for further details.
George Miller has done something genuinely impressive with Mad Max: Fury Road – he’s made Max part of an ensemble – and not even the biggest part of the ensemble – and it works. Brilliantly!
Fury Road is thinly plotted – a tyrant’s five breeding wives are taken to freedom by a formerly trusted female war chief – but its energy, ferocity and just plain gonzo goofiness take it up so many levels that you might have trouble breathing up there.
