UK director Joe Cornish’s most recent film, Attack the Block, has been attracting a lot of attention in Britain, and it’s even started to catch the eye of in-the-know cinephiles here in North America. Set in a council estate – look it up on Wikipedia, there’s a lot to explaining them – the film is about a group of kids who work to survive and then strike back at invading aliens. It’s like ET’s evil twin.
Spin Cinema host, Peter Murphy had a chance to chat with Cornish about the film and based on the Ghostbusters vibe he got from the film, he asked Joe how much of a fan he was. Turns out, a lot.
