    LEVIATHAN Wins Top Prize at London Film Festival

    HIGH-RISE producer and Jury President Jeremy Thomas named the winner in a ceremony held on Saturday.

    "We were all very engaged by the 12 films selected for competition and really admired many of them, there were extraordinary stories and impressive images,” said Thomas. "But there was one film that we were unanimous in wanting to award best film, Leviathan directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev. Its grandeur and themes moved all of us in the same way.”


    "I don’t know anyone who makes movies like he does" Elisabeth Moss talks to Indiewire about Ben Wheatley’s HIGH-RISE

    It seems you’re going to a good place right now with the projects you’re choosing. You’ve done “Top of the Lake” which was amazing, you got to work with Walter Salles in “On The Road,” and now you have “High Rise” with Ben Wheatly, which also sounds intriguing. What can you say about that one?
    I’m glad you ask, I’m really excited about that one. I love it because people who really know about film are excited about that one, because people familiar with Ben Wheatley’s work know what an unusual filmmaker he is. I signed on purely upon the fact that I was a fan of Ben’s, and in particular “Sightseers,” and the script is obviously based on the book [by J.G. Ballard] and it is very strange, and I have no idea what it’s going to look like, but I just love his style of filmmaking. I just think he’s so interesting and unique and I don’t know anyone who makes movies like he does. Maybe there’s a couple but I don’t know, I think he’s so unusual and I just wanted to get a chance to work with him and be part of that world and, it was so fun to make and he got all these great actors because good actors recognize, “There’s a great filmmaker, I should work with him.” So he’s got Jeremy Irons and Tom Hiddleston and all these great people to do this movie. I think it’s it’s going to be really cool; it’s going to be highly unusual.

    Is it a different vibe from his other stuff that you’ve seen of his?
    I would say it’s bigger than anything he’s ever done. It’s totally his style, his sense of humor and his sense of drama. Everything is totally his style of filmmaking but on a bigger scale.

    That sounds cool.
    Yeah, like if you gave him a bigger crew, a little bit more money, costumes and hair and makeup, all of that stuff that maybe he hasn’t had before. It was so fun, he is just a fucking genius and he’s so funny.

    TURKEY, Mursitpinar : Smoke and flames rise following an explosion in the Syrian town of Kobane, also known as Ain al-Arab, as seen from the southeastern Turkish village of Mursitpinar in the Sanliurfa province on October 20, 2014. Turkey dropped its refusal to allow Kurdish fighters over the border to defend the besieged Syrian town of Kobane, saying it was now helping Iraqi peshmerga to cross the frontier in a major policy shift.

    …I was so touched I couldn’t stop crying. I feel shame at “the fall of man” strongly and so think that we must learn the meaning of ‘compassion’ from these animals.
