#DFNYFocus On: Marc Klein – Screenwriter / Director

(Serendipity, A Good Year, Suburban Girl, Mirror Mirror)

Q: Which film do you love that might surprise people?

MK: John Carpenter’s The Thing.  I write mostly female-centric films, and there’s not a single woman in Carpenter’s movie, but the atmosphere of isolation and doom is expertly crafted.

Q: If you could pair up any two actors/actresses, living or dead, which two would it be & what kind of film?

MK: 1970’s Goldie Hawn and 1970’s Barbara Streisand in a screwball buddy comedy!

Q: Which film has had the biggest impact on you personally, and why?

MK: City Lights.  Beneath the humor, it’s still the most moving film I’ve ever seen.  The end shot sums up what it means to be human.

Q: If you could have one prop from any film what would it be?

MK: Captain Kirk’s tunic from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Q: Is there any subject matter which you would not make a film about?

MK: As a white male, there seem to be many subjects the PC police have deemed off limits for me.  That said, I’ve never really liked movies about men in drag.
