Embedded above is a captivating interview with Louis Malle conducted by famed Texan NBC 5 entertainment reporter Bobbie Wygant. Malle is being interviewed to promote his 1985 film Alamo Bay, which ended up being one of the most divisive films of his career. The footage appears to be a rough cut of the discussion—the session starts with Malle having a pre-interview conversation with Wygant, the screen cuts to color bars at one point, and the talk is briefly halted to address a spot where an edit could be made—but the quality of the video is supreme. Malle addresses the vitriol that followed the release of his movie (along with many others), filming with Vietnamese locals, and his tendency to make films that are “drastically different” from each other.
