Captain America directors Joe and Anthony Russo

Cinema Royale talks to Joe and Anthony Russo, directors of Marvel’s new film Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which the hosts classify as a “paranoid government thriller conspiracy film.”

The Russos talk about their love for filmmaking, saying that “we have very eclectic taste, we like all the genres… big films, small films, commercials, everything, it’s all film for us,” and calling a large action film “something we’ve been wanting to do for a long time.” They “identify what it is we like about certain movies” and use them as influences, citing The French Connection as an inspiration for the way they film car chases.
