Hyena Road

Making ‘Hyena Road’: A conversation with Paul Gross

For Canadian actor, writer, director, and producer Paul Gross, the term “daunting task” doesn’t seem to exist anywhere in his common lexicon. Previous to this hugely-scaled film on the Canadian campaign in the Afghanistan war, Hyena Road, he tackled Canada’s role in The Great War in Passchendaele, so when the opportunity presented itself to hang out with Paul Gross for a morning’s worth of Hyena Road conversation, I had to find out what his definition of a daunting task meant.

Film Friday: ‘Passchendaele’ & ‘W.’

Writer, actor, and director Paul Gross gives Canada a history lesson this week with the epic war film, Passchendaele, while south of the border, Oliver Stone recounts the life (so far) of U.S. President George W. Bush with the somewhat controversial film, W. Also opening this week is video-game-turned-action-movie, Max Payne, the sweet drama, The Secret Life of Bees, and the teen romp, Sex Drive.
