Making the cut, taking a break

Jane Campion has been welcomed back by cinema critics and audiences after a 4 year break between films, with her harrowing thriller/love story, In the Cut. USA Today describes the film as “a bleak walk on the wild side into a neo-noir hell … [by] Campion, known for searing dissections of the female psyche,” while the Seattle Times calls Campion “one of the more fearless minds in cinema.” In the Cut was the closing feature at an Antipodean film festival in St Tropez and Campion was the keynote speaker at Seattles’s ‘Felliniana‘  a celebration of iconic filmmaker, Federico Fellini. Campion has decided to take a 4-year sabbatical: “It’s something I’ve been dreaming about for a few years. I’m almost 50 now and I’ve been working in the industry for 20 years … I actually think I’ve satisfied myself enough career-wise to really love doing nothing.”
