Denis Villeneuve grasps the most terrifying moments of life and brings them to the screen with an intimacy that is revealing and a truth that is both compassionate and uncomfortable. To critical acclaim. And recognition.
The Canadian/Québécois director is known for films like Polytechnique (2009), Maelstrom (2000) and Incendies (2010) and his work has earned him Jutra and Genie award wins as well as an Academy Award nomination in 2010.
His two world premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival -- Prisoners (Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Paul Dano) and Enemy (Jake Gyllenhaal, Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, Isabella Rossellini) -- are just as disturbing, gritty and compelling. He takes the red chair and talks to George about creating, maturing as a filmmaker and making a movie in Cannywood South.
