[228] Lawrence Bender Interview

Another article from my Inglourious Basterds coverage. This time, here is my interview with producer, and Tarantino bud Lawrence Bender. The interview was at Claridges, an achingly posh hotel in the high-class Mayfair area of London. I was astounded by the opulence. The interview was short (6 minutes), but to the point and full of character.

With Inglourious Basterds coming out on August 21st, we got the chance to have a chat with producer Lawrence Bender. A close collaborator with Tarantino, Bender is credited as producer on all the writer-director's projects, apart from 2007's Grindhouse, but has also found success with producing the likes of From Dusk Till Dawn, Killing Zoe, The Mexican, and the Academy Award-winning Al Gore documentary An Inconvenient Truth.

He speaks here about his quirky, yet tight working relationship with Tarantino, the pressures behind filming Inglourious Basterds, and his period as a Global Warming awareness activist.
