INTERVIEW: Director Roger Donaldson on ‘The Bank Job’

 

Without completely realizing it, director Roger Donaldson has been one of my absolute favorite filmmakers over the years. I say I didn't realize it because, even before I paid that much attention to directors' names, I was groovin' on Donaldson's works.

I have an unhealthy obsession with NO WAY OUT. It's always been one of my go-to films when I want to show people a really clever work that they probably haven't seen. It also has one of the greatest twist ending ever, and features Sean Young at her absolute most brazen and sexy.

He also managed to put Jason Statham back on the map as something more than just an action star (not that there's anything wrong with that), and the resulting film is as much fun as anything I've seen this year. I spoke to Donaldson just a couple of days ago, and we covered much of his career and what it takes make the complicated understandable.
