SXSW 2021 Interview: Nick Gillespie on a Master of Delusion in “Paul Dood’s Deadly Lunch Break”

“I’m Paul Dood and I’m a triple threat,” the titular character (Tom Meeten) of “Paul Dood’s Deadly Lunch Break” says as he prepares his audition for the Trend Ladder Talent Show, alluding to his purported abilities to act, sing and dance, but this being a dark satire from Nick Gillespie, the longtime cinematographer for “Kill List” director Ben Wheatley and a helmer in his own right, you know the “threat” part is no joke. Smearing on eye shadow and violently thrusting his hips to the Human League’s “Together in Electric Dreams,” his plans to be discovered on the social media-fueled television sensation filming just across town are unlikely to go as smoothly they do in his head, even if he actually had artistic merit when he’s saddled with an elderly mother (Ninette Finch) he needs to take with him to keep an eye on and find a way out of work at a thrift store with a two-faced boss.

I’ve luckily had the privilege of helping cover SXSW 2021 – one of the best festivals out there. One of the films on my radar is Paul Dood’s Deadly Lunch Break and it was bloody fantastic. Unfortunately, that’s all I can stay until the premiere. I recently had the chance to chat with the director, Nick Gillespie about his career, details about Paul Dood’s Deadly Lunch Break, the inspiration behind the film, and more.
