In his role as a bored Hollywood actor in the Japanese movie Lost in Translation, Murray is baffled when the interpreter tells him that the Japanese director’s lengthy, impassioned stream of instructions just means: “He wants you to look at the camera.” The movie scene is […]
My father Walter Zanger was definitely a “character”. On the one hand, he was a reform rabbi with a vast knowledge of Judaism, who featured in the American documentary television series, Mysteries of the Bible, and on the other hand, he was a sort of hippy who grew up at the dawn of the rock’n’roll era.
