Interference AV ft. UNDERVOLT & CO, Jlin, Lightning Bolt, and the Sun Ra Arkestra

William Friedkin, Bug



William Friedkin may forever be known as the man who made pea green soup scary with 1973's The Exorcist. With the low-budget, high-intensity psychological thriller Bug, Friedkin shows he can still unnerve a theater full of thrillseekers. Interviewed aboard Roberto Cavali's luxury yacht at the 59th Cannes Film Festival, Friedkin discusses how he saw Tracy Letts' off-Broadway hit, pursued the rights, convinced Ashley Judd to go starkers, and resisted big names to let Michael Shannon repeat his stage role. Also on the agenda: marriages with Jeanne Moreau and former Paramount chief Sherry Lansing.
