Metro Manila – Sean Ellis (Guardian)
Shot on a shoestring in a language he didn’t understand, Sean Ellis’s Metro Manila could be the most unlikely hit of the year.
HOW DID METRO MANILA PREPARE YOU FOR ANTHROPOID? (15 questions to Sean Ellis)
I think it gave me back my confidence. The making of The Broken was not a pleasant experience for me but I did learn a lot about the sort of filmmaker I wanted to be. I made Metro Manila on my own terms with my own money. It was a huge gamble but the result was a film that I’m very proud of. You take that confidence into the making of your next film and hope it gets you through the day to day process.
Happy birthday Cillian Murphy!
