EP 522: Hilary Swank and Deon Taylor Revive Noir

Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank and filmmaker Deon Taylor talk about their new film Fatale and their love of classic film noir directors from Alfred Hitchcock to Brian Depalma. Hilary explains what drew her to finally play an antagonist on screen and how she found a way into that character that strikes right at the heart of worst fears and most basic instincts. Plus we talk about expanding the range of female villains beyond shallow "psycho woman" roles and the social responsibility of depicting police violence against a black man on film in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Fatale opens in theaters on Friday, Deceember 18. For showtimes and more information, visit
