Monthly interview August: Terry Zwigoff

Terry Zwigoff © Armando Gallo / Retna Ltd.Terry Zwigoff (born May 18th, 1948), is an American film director and screenwriter who began his career making documentaries. "Louie Bluie" (1985), about an obscure Blues musician, was his first film. It was followed by another documentary, "Crumb" (1995) which won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and also the DGA Award, along with every film critic's award that year including the New York Film Critic's Award, The National Society of Film Critics Award, and the Los Angeles Film Critics Award. It's failure to receive an Oscar nomination, and the subsequent outcry from this omission, led to the Academy Awards changing the way it's members voted for Documentary Film.

Zwigoff's next film was "Bad Santa" (2003) which was Executive Produced and partially written by the Coen Brothers and Zwigoff. It's star, Billy Bob Thornton, was nominated for a Golden Globe award. Zwigoff's last film, "Art School Confidential" (2005) starred John Malkovich, Jim Broadbent, and Angelica Huston. He has two new films in the works, one a comedy and the other a drama.
