I spoke with Alexander The Last director Joe Swanberg a day or so ago. It had to be a phoner because he lives in Chicago. The chat lasted 18 minutes. He agreed that he’s less a story-driven director than a framer and coaxer of emotions, personalities, situations, moods. Either films of this type get you or they don’t. I made it clear last Tuesday I’m a sucker.
