Michael Fassbender: The TF Interview
Total Film has woken Michael Fassbender up. When he strides into the London hotel suite where we’re waiting for him he admits jovially that he just “dropped off next door”…  No surprise.

 30 Films To See At London Film Festival 2011
DRAGONSLAYER
What Is It? Not the classic, beast-felling fantasy from 1981 starring Peter MacNicol – in fact, far from it.    This new Dragonslayer is a skater documentary that took home the Best Documentary award at the SXSW Festival earlier this year.

Star of the show is Josh ‘Skreech’ Sandoval, a homeless California skateboarder who bums off his friends and spends his time getting drunk and/or high. Clearly influenced by Gus Van Sant, director Tristan Patterson delivers a cool indie doc that doesn’t flinch away from its subject.
