'The Grandmaster' Talks: Watch 30-Minute Interview With Wong Kar-wai & Conversation With ‘Mad Men’ Creator Matthew Weiner

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist August 5, 2013 at 10:17AM

While he may give off the impression of an artist who works in secrecy and mystery, shrouding this projects and process with an impenetrable veil, it would appear that Wong Kar-Wai has no problem opening up. Hell, the man braved the world of Comic-Con last month to help promote his forthcoming "The Grandmaster," and with movie now due for release in a few weeks, he's doing the press rounds in the United States. And it is resulting in some pretty fascinating stuff from the director.

Wong Kar-Wai

While he may give off the impression of an artist working in secret, shrouding this projects and process with an impenetrable veil, it would appear that Wong Kar-Wai has no problem opening up. Hell, the man braved the world of Comic-Con last month to help promote his forthcoming "The Grandmaster," and with movie now due for release in a few weeks, he's doing the press rounds in the United States, resulting in some pretty fascinating stuff from the director.

A fansite dedicated to the filmmaker has dug up a couple of pieces that will definitely be of interest to fans of Wong Kar-Wai. The first is a chat with (of all people) "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner during "An Academy Salute to Wong Kar Wai" last month, and the second is an extensive 30-minute interview with Dave Poland. Both are pretty fascinating, with the director opening up about "The Grandmaster" and much more (sidenote: he says he's just as happy with the shorter American cut of "The Grandmaster" as he is with the 20-minute longer international version).

Give both a click below. "The Grandmaster" opens on August 23rd.
