New York Film Locations

Interview Set for Revisited

16 October 2023

It was a month before the launch of On the Set of New York in November 2009 did “Interview” become part of the initial list of movies with its limited filming locations that included a restaurant in Tribeca and an apartment building on West 29th Street in the neighbourhood of Chelsea, the film was revisited a few years later. It has now been marked for another revisit with all screen shots being replaced with higher quality ones and updated real locations added.

The film “Interview” was originally a remake of Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh’s 2003 film of the same name. The American version, which premiered in 2007, starred Steve Buscemi as Pierre Peders, a fading political journalist interviewing a soap opera star, Katya, played by Sienna Miller. This film also featured Tara Elders as Maggie, Molly Griffith as a waitress, and Philippe Vonlanthen as an autograph seeker.

The Pierre character makes the mistake of condescending to Katya, insulting her and making it clear he would rather be in Washington covering a breaking story. The interview crashes, they walk out and then paparazzi stalking Katya push Pierre into traffic, he gets a cut on his head, and she insists on taking him to her nearby apartment. End of Act 1. Act 2 turns into a two-hander with them talking, drinking, smoking, doing some cocaine, flirting, duelling, insulting and playing nasty head games.

Sienna Miller

American-British actress Sienna Miller is no stranger to New York, and in fact she was born in New York City but raised in London where she later began her career as a photography model, appearing in the pages of Italian Vogue and for the 2003 Pirelli calendar.

Scene from Alfie

Her acting breakthrough came in the 2004 films “Layer Cake” and “Alfie” which was partly shot in New York. Miller played Nikki; a stunning socialite who’s looks far outweighed her whirlwind behaviour and who was probably not on screen enough. Her grand opening scene in “Alfie” came when she exited Tavern on the Green with a group of friends and flagged down Alfie’s limo. It was an introduction on the same scale as that of Cameron Diaz in “The Mask”. Turning in slow-motion towards the camera, Miller looked every part a model with sixties-style flowing locks and provocative eye-makeup, her performance was undoubtedly the high point of the movie.

Miller subsequently portrayed real-time socialite Edie Sedgwick in “Factory Girl”, another New York-based film which has scenes outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Fifth Avenue, and in Central Park. More recently, she was featured in the action-thriller “21 Bridges”, which had some scenes shot in the city, with one playing out inside Grand Central Terminal and featuring Miller.
