This week I’ll talk about some famous Interview moments in films!
#1 From Hell
I’ve always been fascinated by Jack the Ripper and read several books on the topic. Since the killer had never found, large chunks of the film are of course fictional but it’s nevertheless an intriguing film.
It may not be Johnny Depp’s best movie, however, I loved the vibe it gave off.
If there ever was a true crime film that sparked controversy, it’s Oliver Stone’s JFK. As I am currently writing my master thesis about John F. Kennedy in TV shows, I will certainly make a point to check out this film. It’s mentioned in just every book I picked up that deals with history in the movies.
This film depicts the manhunt for the Zodiac killer who had been active during the 1960s and ’70s. To this date, it remains one of America most infamous unsolved crimes. Before shooting this film, director David Fincher and his team spent 18 months conducting their own investigation and research on the matter.
