Anton Corbijn, Director of The American

Anton Corbijn is not unlike George Clooney’s protagonist in The American, the expat hitman holed up in an Italian village. Corbijn, just like Clooney’s Jack, is a man who moved to a foreign country and now quietly makes his living doing something that requires few words: shooting people. Of course, it’s very important to stress that UK-based Dutch transplant Corbijn uses a camera rather than a gun: after becoming one of the most celebrated photographers in the world, Corbijn transitioned to directing films in 2007 with Control, his Cannes award-winning biopic of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis. The American is his second feature.
