Another year, another interview with Trey Edward Shults, one of my favorite up and coming filmmakers. (I should maybe start a list of my favorite up and comers, just for my own edification, but also because I really love web traffic.)
In March of 2016, we talked about Krisha, his debut film, which turned out to be one of my favorite movies of the year. In June (the month we’re in) of 2017 (the year we’re in, Christ help us all), we talked about It Comes at Night, which he gave a mention to in our Krisha interview, all casual-like, as though the note that he was already working on his sophomore feature wasn’t a big deal or something. Trey’s a pretty chill guy.
You might not guess it by watching his movies, though. They’re tense. They also feel personal, even It Comes at Night, which compared to Krisha is not at all a family affair as a production. Still great, though, but I’m almost at 200 words and I’m hungry, so I’ll just leave you with this handy dandy link to Slant Magazine, the outlet I had the pleasure of interviewing Trey for.
