Yesterday, Jordan Ruimy at The Playlist published an interview with recent horror film It Comes At Night director Trey Edward Shults. This is one of those rare conversations where the interviewer knows and deeply appreciates their subject’s work. Hot on the heels of It Comes At Night‘s theatrical release, Shults’ conversation covers his work with Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life, his first film Krisha, and how he got into making movies in the first place – by teaching himself. Much like his films, Shults is open about his influences no matter how difficult they might be. That’s just part of the reason he’s one of today’s most promising indie filmmakers, and why we aren’t taking our eyes off his work any time soon.
