“All movies are political,” the indefatigable Costa-Gavras told Leonard Lopate last week while stopping by his WNYC radio show. As busy and vital as ever, the seventy-six-year-old Greek filmmaker was in town for both the North American premiere of his new immigration drama Eden Is West (as part of Lincoln Center’s Rendez-Vous with French Cinema series) and the opening of Rialto’s new fortieth-anniversary print of his 1969 Oscar-winning thriller Z (at Manhattan’s Film Forum). His conversation with Lopate, in which he discusses both films, is definitely worth a listen. Click here to download a podcast of the entire show. Costa-Gavras’s Missing was released on Criterion DVD last October.
