WATCH: Tony Scott DP/30 Interview

On this night of tragic Hollywood news, there’s no better way to remember the soft-spoken kinetic genius of Tony Scott than to watch a half-hour interview he gave to Movie City News’ David Poland at the end of last year of 2010.*

Poland is a great admirer of Unstoppable, the last film directed by Scott and the Northumberland, UK native’s fifth collaboration with Denzel Washington. At one point during this DP/30 conversation, Scott reveals that, “The most rewarding days of my life are when I’m doing the toughest performance scene, not an action scene, and I watch these guys [like Denzel] give it back. And it’s rewarding, it’s such a good feeling.” RIP.

*Correction – 08/22/12: The original headline for this item, “WATCH: Tony Scott December 2011 Interview”, has been amended. The interview was in fact recorded by Poland in the fall of 2010. FishbowlLA regrets the error.
