Eric interviews writer/director Rian Johnson (“Brick”) about his newest con-man comedy “The Brothers Bloom,” starring Adrien Brody, Mark Ruffalo, and Rachel Weisz. This is an in-depth look at some of the secrets behind “The Brothers Bloom,” and since Johnson’s commentary was so interesting and thought-provoking, we decided to present the whole interview. If you are a true film fan, this is fascinating stuff, as Johnson discusses the challenge inherent in con-artist movies, why storytelling is important to our lives, designing one character with a lack of dialogue, a heightened stylistic reality, and Johnson’s new project, a sci-fi movie called “Looper.”
