Summary: Garnering a reputation as an actor's director, Barry Levinson has built a career around character-driven films-which, despite their complex themes and quirky premises, often attract Hollywood's biggest stars. This program profiles the creative force behind Diner, The Natural, Good Morning Vietnam, and other projects, exploring his views on directing actors, creating the specific look of a film, and the cultural and emotional impact of moving images. Describing the aesthetic aims of Bugsy, Levinson extols the contributions of the film's cinematographer, production designer, and leading performers. He also covers the heady experience of shooting Wag the Dog and the concerns that drove him to make Avalon, Tin Men, and Liberty Heights.
