INTERVIEW: Director Mark Palansky’s philosophy of film


Blockbuster moviemaking would be the expected career path of one of Michael Bay’s former employees, but Mark Palansky has never been one for doing the “expected” thing. In facting, spending the early part of his career on the sets of such big-budget projects as Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and The Island helped this Toronto native make the most of a $12 million budget on the quirky Penelope.

A modern day fairytale about a cursed young heiress who sets out to find love and acceptance, the film—which stars Christina Ricci, James McAvoy, Peter Dinklage and Reese Witherspoon (who also produced)—is finally hitting theaters today after a series of delays. MM caught up with Palansky to discuss his philosophy of film.
