The A-List: Peter Bogdanovich on directing
She’s Funny That Way
By Iain Blair
actor/author and film historian Peter Bogdanovich hit Hollywood like a tornado when his 1971 masterpiece,
The Last Picture Show, scored eight Oscar nominations, winning two of those golden boys. He followed that up with more hits, including
What’s Up, Doc? and Paper Moon. The latter won the Oscar for then 10-year-old Tatum O’Neal.
Since those heady days, Bogdanovich has had his ups and downs, and he’s largely spent most of the last 15 years working in TV, both behind and in front of the camera — he was a regular on
The Sopranos and also directed an episode. Now he’s back with a new film,
She’s Funny That Way, a screwball comedy about the interconnected personal lives of the cast and crew of a Broadway production, starring an ensemble cast that includes Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson, Will Forte, Kathryn Hahn, Rhys Ifans and Imogen Poots.
