    Q&A: Sebastián Silva and the Paranoid Atmosphere of “MAGIC MAGIC”

    Sebastián Silva, aided by a truly remarkable performance from Juno Temple, turns MAGIC MAGIC (now available on DVD from Sony) into a movie where its paranoid atmosphere seeps out and permeates the audience watching it. It’s something undeniably strange, oddly funny in certain moments and head-to-toe unsettling at others. It can be both simultaneously, and most often exclusively the latter. A tale predicated on uncertainty, Alicia (Temple) has little physical sense of where she is and is subsequently losing a mental grasp, as well. FANGORIA spoke with Silva about creating this ever-nervous world, the nature of horror, urban myth and his fear of a misleading trailer.

    Bong Joon-ho’s “SNOWPIERCER” threatened with edits for American release?

    I have a great optimism for the general audience. We will rise to the occasion that a challenging, exciting film presents. Sometimes, producers and distributors do not share as such. In this case, Bong Joon-ho, the world class South Korean filmmaker behind THE HOST and MOTHER, and his highly anticipated sci-fi tale SNOWPIERCER are apparently being threatened with cuts.

    There’s iciness to Scandinavian cinema that is hard to pin down, a certain class of emotional detachment that fascinates. This is especially true of the Swedes who, from Bergman on up, have long hooked us with silences and atmosphere rather than explicit shocks or attention-baiting sensory overload.
