After interviewing Kieslowski and Hartley, low budget British documentarists Anipare and Wood tackle another leading figure of contemporary cinema, caught during his spell directing a Gavin Bryars opera at the London Coliseum. The format is again a fairly lengthy interview intercut by clips. As with the Hartley film (Trouble and Desire), one occasionally feels a little judicious editing might have been applied to some of Egoyan's more discursive responses, but it's an informative, intelligent study all the same. And Anipare and Wood do have excellent taste, don't they?
