Just realised, I didn’t say a word about interviewing Guillermo Del Toro last week. It was another interview for Hotdog where they want specific things- in this case, his golden rules for making a horror movie. I’d already done something like this with Ray Harryhausen a couple of weeks previously, and it hadn’t gone smoothly- but the guy was an absolute pro from start to finish. I explained the set-up- and basically just sat back and let him talk for about twenty minutes. Intelligent, funny, and one of the easiest and most enjoyable interviews I’d done for ages. The man’s a star.
More soon. I’m currently tinkering with a review, and I’ve got to get it finished before I can think straight.
