INTERVIEW: Clive Owen on making ‘The International’

 

If you want to wound Clive Owen, just call him an action star and watch him flinch. It didn't seem unreasonable – after all, Owen has made a fine art of brooding gunplay; in films such as Shoot 'Em Up, Sin City and I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, he could be the little brother of Alain Delon's expressionless hitman in Le Samouraï, someone whose nihilism has bottom and some flavours to it, like a good cognac. His latest, The International, is emblematic of Owen's terse, introverted style, playing a driven Interpol agent whose obsessive mission is to expose a bank's corruption and bring it down.
