‘Cruella’ Director Craig Gillespie on Humanizing a Disney Villain and Looking to ‘Ocean’s 11’ for Inspiration [Interview]

Cruella is a crime movie, and director Craig Gillespie seems to relish that. Sure, this is Disney’s latest live-action reboot, an attempt to bring an iconic character back into the spotlight with an expensive origin story.

While /Film’s main review is mixed, I enjoyed the film – it has style to spare, and it’s anchored by terrific performances that lend the perfect blend of menace and sincerity to an outlandish story.
