I hung out with Hugh Hudson at the 2005 Mar del Plata Film Festival. We met in his hotel room, and then discussed what subjects we could cover in a forthcoming q & a. Later that day (or was it the early evening?) we did it in front of an audience. He struck me as a nice, urbane guy who knew most of the angles. I greatly admired Chariots of Fire (who didn't?) but not Revolution ('85), which pretty much torpedoed Hudson's career. For me Greystoke ('84) was an intriguing film about primal life vs. the repressive nature of upper-crust British society, and was mostly an in-and-outer. In short, Hudson's golden chapter lasted five or six years ('80 to '85).
