"Also on the table was Lee’s laptop and a copy of the novel he has almost finished adapting for his third film, about which I am sworn to secrecy. (It’s a horror movie with strong elements of “class and queerness”, about a sad young man alone in an epic wilderness; Josh O’Connor will star.)"
Class and queerness? In this economy? In all seriousness a Sad Gay Boy Horror Movie involving these two is entirely my heroin, so inject it, inject it deep into me, baby. All that said the interview with Lee at Esquire is worth your time, that news aside -- it gives a terrific window into a very closed-off and, by Kate Winslet's loving summation, "odd" man. I think he's one of the best new filmmakers we've got, and that soon people will also appreciate Ammonite for its brilliance, because I think it's stark-raving brilliant. It'll be one of those movies that people will revisit once they've got more of a handle on his way of telling stories, once he's told more stories, and be like, "Oh right, that's actually amazing." That's what I say anyway! God I love Ammonite. In case you missed my review it's right here.
