Adrian LyneStreaming Video - 2010
A far cry from his origins in advertising, the feature films of Adrian Lyne are designed to impact viewers on a primal level. This program spotlights the director in an earnest discussion of his work, revealing what it was like to make Fatal Attraction, 9 1/2 weeks, Unfaithful, and other visually innovative, sexually charged movies. Lyne emphasizes his need for a solid story premise, highlighting the narrative potential he saw in Jacob's Ladder and Indecent Proposal, and for strong casting, pointing to Robert Redford, Glenn Close, and Tim Robbins as rewarding examples. In one fascinating segment, Lyne outlines ways to make the filmmaking process less intimidating for actors-such as tail-slating shots and electing not to call action.
