It's the voice, not just his own speaking voice but the way a character sounds that matters to Michael Caine (Get Carter, The Italian Job, The Cider House Rules, Alfie, The Dark Knight, Zulu) . His new film is Harry Brown, and he'll discusses sound.
Directed by Daniel Barber and co-starring Emily Mortimer, the film looks at the violent drug-fueled gangs of a decrepit London housing project, and how an ex-Marine, recently bereaved of both his wife and best friend, decides enough is enough.
Caine discusses his epic film career, how growing up in a rough area of south London and being in the National Service has influenced his acting style, and that his first decision after accepting a role is his hair style. He says that Harry Brown is not a violent film, but a film about violence and how its shocking themes were initially brought to light in A Clockwork Orange.
