Bobbie O’Steen’s interviews with top editors at the downtown 92nd Street Y–more properly known as 92YTribeca–are great evenings involving smart talk with a top editor and a screening of their film for a minor charge of $12.
Bobbie does these events as part of an ongoing series spun out of her popular editing craft book The Invisible Cut: How Editors Make Movie Magic. I covered a previous evening for the Motion Pictures Editors Guild magazine and had a lot of fun hearing what went on with the production and post on Altman’s Gosford Park.
Thursday’s event brought film editor John Gilroy, A.C.E. to screen and discuss the well-regarded George Cluny star’d Michael Clayton (2007), a film that includes a knockout performance by one of my faves, Tilda Swinton (she won an Oscar as best supporting actor for the role).
I’ll be covering this for the Editors Guild magazine, so check out the link to the online version which I’ll post as soon as it’s ready. If you haven’t seen the movie, get it from Netflix for two hours of a well-written script, great acting, fantastic cinematography courtesy of Robert Elswit, and yes, a well-edited adult entertainment.
