Modern movies are ‘appalling’ says director Peter Greenaway

Modern movies are “appalling”, “predictable” and nothing more than “bedtime stories for adults” according to one of the most respected figures in UK cinema.

Peter Greenaway is dismayed at the standard of movie making and the popular fodder churned out for multiplexes.He said there are few interesting directors at work, and the best of them haven’t made a great film since the 1990s.

Mr Greenaway, famous for a string of acclaimed highly-visual British movies in the 1980s and 1990s, gave his broadside when speaking to The Herald ahead of his appearance at Plymouth Festival of Words.
