"Interviewing David Bordwell is the easiest job in the world. He is extremely friendly and gracious (and funny) but, more importantly, he also has strong and interesting opinions and is extraordinarily articulate in expressing them. All I had to do was stammer out a question now and then and off he'd go, delivering a series of fascinating and wide-ranging comments, all off the top of his head and with no warning about what subjects I'd be bringing up.
This is the complete interview, with only a couple of long and confusing questions of mine cut out to spare the viewer.
Special thanks to David Bordwell for agreeing to this, Donato Totaro of Offscreen for publishing the interview, King-wei Chu of Fantasia for helping set it up and Victor Arroyo for making the video. It was a real treat for me."
