Directed by John Malkovich, JULIAN SANDS IN:A CELEBRATION OF HAROLD PINTER
is a rare insight into Pinter’s personality, life and works. Pinter was a director, actor, political activist, and Nobel Prize Winner, as well as an absolutely exacting writer. Sands comments that Pinter’s poetry is surprisingly personal and emotionally open. The readings are direct, honest and intimate, and entertaining to even those hearing the material for the very first time.
Sands, who is best to known to audiences for his film roles in The Killing Fields, A Room With a View, Warlock, Arachnophobia, Leaving Las Vegas, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Vatel, worked with Harold Pinter throughout much of his life. The two became
closest when Sands was in the 1987 film of Pinter’s play, The Room.“What John [Malkovich] and I set out to create more than anything else was an entertainment. We want people to enjoy it just as we do, not simply to have an academic experience.”
JULIAN SANDS: IN A CELEBRATION OF HAROLD PINTER is an intriguing way to remember and pay tribute to a man of such depth and complexity.
