A few days ago, as I was walking from the convention center here in Austin back to my car, I ran into a friend on the street who was here with Miguel Sapochnik, director of “Repo Men.” Because I had just interviewed Sapochnik, I felt comfortable insisting that he check out that night’s screening of “A Serbian Film,” still by far the most interesting thing I’ve seen at SXSW this year.
Sapochnik impresses me as a hearty movie fan, a guy with a keen taste for the outrageous, and I think his movie reflects those sensibilities quite strongly. I enjoyed our brief chat on the phone, which you can read in full below:
Drew McWeeny: I wanted to talk about where this film began for you, because I know what the novel is, but your film feels like it”s got its own voice, and I can”t help but feel that there is a touch of a Verhoven to it.
