LA Times Director's Roundtable

In just 10 days, we'll see the Hollywood Foreign Press Association hand out the Golden Globes to this year's best and brightest in cinema. Of course, the real awards won't be handed out until the Academy Awards in March (with the nominations announced on January 16th). In the meantime, it's worth it to soak up as much as we can from the potential nominees, and The LA Times has done just that with a one-hour roundtable discussion with directors Spike Jonze, Steve McQueenJohn Lee Hancock, J.C. Chandor, Nicole Holofcener & Paul Greengrass, the talent behind Her, 12 Years a Slave, Saving Mr. Banks, All Is Lost, Enough Said & Captain Phillips, respectively. It's fascinating. Watch below!

Here's The LA Times directors roundtable from their awards section The Envelope:

From their filmmaking influences, including J.C. Chandor's tear-inducing viewing of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, to the impact reviews have on them, there's a wide variety of topics each of these directors discuss. These kind of roundtables are always so entrancing with each filmmaker having a different approach and path to the career they have today, not to mention a mutual love for all things cinematic. It's a shame these videos are only an hour long, because I could watch directors talk like this for hours. Of course, then I wouldn't have as much time to watch all of their great movies, and that would be a real problem.

Just played the video and tried both links above in the article. They're all working, so I don't know why you can't get it to work.

What is the movie that Steve McQueen said had a big impact on him? I couldn't understand what he said.
