Interview with Lake of Fire Filmmaker Tony Kaye, About.com Sept ‘07
20 Sep 2007
The issue of abortion seems to be an endless quagmire of debate with many layers on each side. It took filmmaker Tony Kaye (American History X) 15 years to complete his documentary, Lake of Fire, which attempts to collect every side of the argument in one two and a half hour film. Kaye interviewed extremes and moderates on the pro-choice and pro-life sides, religious and secular, legal and philosophical, as well as capturing protests and confrontations on film.
Tony Kaye once called himself 'the greatest English director since Hitchcock'. Before long he was locked in the most ludicrous legal battle Hollywood has ever seen, his tantrums and excesses having proven too much for everyone around him - even Marlon Brando. Is he sorry? Deeply, he tells Adam Higginbotham.
