Mike Leigh on the CBC

Wednesday morning I heard the latter part of a radio interview with British director Mike Leigh on the CBC. Interesting stuff, and in light of his recent Oscar snub for Happy-Go-Lucky (as Sporgey noted below), I hunted down the video for the interview (which was actually recorded during this year's TIFF). Skip the first couple minutes to pass over some lighthearted banter and technical adjustments. The real interview starts about two minutes in... Enjoy!
