The Mexican auteur reflects on the supernatural experiences that shaped him, lessons he learned from films that got derailed and why his latest work — "a musical-thriller-drama Douglas Sirk version of a monster movie" about "outsiders" striving to save "a filthy thing that came from South America" — is not only his favorite but "me, in my totality."
But first: Annette Insdorf, a professor in the Graduate Film Program of Columbia University's School of the Arts, joins Scott to talk about her new book Cinematic Overtures: How to Read Opening Scenes, great opening scenes of 2017 films and the differences between Academy members in New York and LA.
Credits: Hosted by Scott Feinberg, recorded and produced by Matthew Whitehurst.
