Alfonso Cuaron

For those who didn't pay attention to the BAFTA winners (the United Kingdom's equivalent of the Academy Awards), you might have missed that Gravity was considered a British film because it was produced by David Heyman and shot largely in studios across the pond. So it makes sense than director Alfonso Cuaron took one hour to sit down with the Los Angeles branch of BAFTA to talk about his whole career, including his influential childhood in Mexico, his time spent in film school and more. This took place in January before he won Best Director, so there's no talk about that, but he certainly dives into the making of Gravity, his previous films, and his tastes and influences in cinema. It's an incredible discussion. Watch!

Here's the whole one-hour BAFTA LA chat with Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron (via SlashFilm):

Gravity is directed by visionary Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón (watch our interview here), of Great Expectations, Y Tu Mamá También, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and the sci-fi Children of Men previously. The screenplay was written by Alfonso and his son Jonás Cuarón and the film stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Warner Bros. released Gravity in IMAX theaters and 3D everywhere on October 4th, and again last month, but the film arrived on Blu-Ray and DVD on February 25th. Cool?

I love this director. I will watch anything he does. Children of Men is still amazing.

Children of Men > Gravity. I hope someone agrees with me.
