VIDEO: Dr. Michael Krasny Interviews Don DeLillo about CosmopolisDon DeLillo Video
We listened to this excellent interview with Don DeLillo early last year, and we re-tweeted about it today. Now that the film is out, it seems a good time to share with our readers. We’ll address the content in upcoming posts about certain aspects of the book, as we look more at the film.
Here’s something interesting. The YouTube videos were uploaded in 2009, they are a re-broadcast of the original. There’s a current reference to the U.S. now being in Baghdad (interview done in 2003) and not being clear how long we’d be there for the invasion (beginning of part 7.) First, it’s fun as a listener today to hear Dr. Krasny talk of the interview “being heard in the future” (with the future is a major theme in Cosmopolis.)
We also, though, now know that Robert Pattinson will be playing the role of Eric Maddox in Mission: Blacklist. Eric Maddox was the interrogator who discovered the hiding place of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.
