It seems that Mike Leigh is popping up everywhere these days. Our local premiere of Happy-Go-Lucky this weekend happens to coincide with the film’s opening in New York and Los Angeles. To mark the occasion, Manohla Dargis has offered up an excellent review of the film. What’s more interesting though is the Anatomy of a Scene feature from Happy-Go-Lucky. In it, they extract a scene from the film, and Mike Leigh discusses how it was made. It actually gives a great deal of inight into his general practice and filmmaking process, and perhaps a sneak preview of the conversation at next week’s Regis Dialogue.
