Michael Fassbender, Fish Tank

Catch a rising star! That's definitely the sensation watching
German-born, Irish-raised Michael Fassbender weave his way through a troubled circle of women as the
charming and deceitful Connor in Fish Tank, Andrea Arnold's compelling study of
longing, lust and loss. Fassbender, in a sitdown at the
Soho Grand, discusses his big break in Steve McQueen's Hunger as the
suicidal IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands (an earlier Subtitles interview with McQueen is available here) and the realism he brought to Quentin
Tarantino's revisionist hit Inglourious Basterds, where he memorably played an English
film critic who, while masquerading as a Nazi, fatefully held aloft the
wrong three fingers (22 minutes).
