A Life in Film: Michael Deeley 2014

16 mins United Kingdom

Energy on screen, says Blade Runner's producer Michael Deeley, often derives from conflict off it. Such energy has propelled his career (from Jacques Tati to Roy Batty), discussed here with admirable candour. He reveals an escape plan from The Italian Job, clashes on The Deer Hunter and which legendary auteur "was clearly on cocaine."
