Yes, a trainwreck is the best way to describe it. Jennifer Lawrence is 22 years old, new to this world of press junkets and awards shows, and an adept interviewer would have framed clear questions that aided her in navigating this world. Instead we got this annoying, fawning, twitchy wall of noise from Roger Durling that she could barely recover from or respond to. Clearly it was all about him - showing what AMAZING film knowledge he has, what astute observations he makes, what an uber fan he is, etc. He did the same shtick last Wednesday when giving the award to Quentin Tarantino - making it all about him and his amazing film geekness. He is a terrible interviewer with a huge ego and has ruined many an interview. He should be reined in. Way in. (Hello? SBIFF Board??)
