GreenCine Daily PODCAST: No stranger to mining lyricism from bleak landscapes, The Proposition director John Hillcoat (here working with screenwriter Joe Penhall) has poignantly visualized the burnt-out, grey wasteland of The Road - the 2006 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Cormac McCarthy, author of No Country for Old Men In this podcast, Hillcoat and Aaron discus the real-life father and son who appear in "The Road", how the hell he distilled Cormac McCarthy in under two hours (his original cut ran four-and-a-half hours), and what most people don't know his long-time collaborator Nick Cave does two or three times a day. Warning: minor book spoiler at 8:05 into the podcast! Fast forward to 10 minutes to pick up after the minor spoiler leaves off. Listen to the podcast. Full article >>.
