Watch a Two-Hour Conversation Between Bong Joon Ho and Ryusuke Hamaguchi
While the season of Ryusuke Hamaguchi formally began with last month’s arrival of Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Wife of a Spy (which he co-wrote), this week finally brings the U.S. release of his first film of 2021, the masterful Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy. Next month we’ll get his Murakami epic Drive My Car, recently named Japan’s Oscar entry this year, and the perfect primer has arrived with a new conversation.

Taking place at Busan International Film Festival, Bong Joon Ho and Ryusuke Hamaguchi gathered for an extensive two-hour discussion to dive deep into the latter’s two new films as well as touching on the filmmaking process in general. They discussed driving scenes, their approach to working with actors, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Eric Rohmer (the director Hamaguchi would most like to imitate), and their shared love of Hong Sang-soo, specifically Right Now, Wrong Then and A Tale of Cinema.
