‘I think they all were powerful countercultural films and alternative stories, which I think is what we do best. They’re ballsy films that punched above their weight because of that. We usually make smaller scale films in the UK than they do in the States or some of the more artistically subsidised European countries. But that can give us a freedom and we should use that to go to unexpected places and push the buttons which get people’s attention. These films did that.’
