Violence, Censorship, and T.V., Part 4: The Filmmaker's Perspective.
Filmmaker John McNaughton whose first film was the cult hit of 1990, "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer". "We all have the murderous urge," McNaughton says of his main character in that film, who as an anonymous everyman, kills many people without recognition nor retribution from society at large. Hailed by some critics as a slasher movie stripped bare of that genre's fantasy elements, "Henry" caught the eye of director Martin Scorsese, who backed McNaughton for this year's "Mad Dog And Glory", which starred Scorsese regular Robert DeNiro. Steven Jones produced "Henry."
Film director Walter Hill. His newest film, which he produced and directed is "Geronimo: An American Legend." He's best known for action-oriented films which include, "Hard Times," "The Long Riders," "48 HRS," "Streets of Fire," and others.
