Interview movie scene

Pierre Bokman and Katja Schuurman talk it over in Theo van Gogh's Interview.

3 By Theo: The Theo van Gogh Collection brings together a trio of movies by the late Dutch filmmaker and author.

Known for his controversial political views and advocacy for freedom of speech, Theo van Gogh and his legacy are well-covered in this DVD set’s varied collection of films:

Blind Date (1996): A bartender watches with amusement as a married couple pretends to be strangers to overcome the pain of their daughter’s death.

Interview (2003): When renowned political journalist Pierre Bokman is forced to interview famous actress Katja Schuurman, both reveal their darkest secrets in this comedy-drama. (This movie was remade in 2007 by writer/director Steve Buscemi of The Big Lebowski fame, who also stars in the film alongside Sienna Miller of Stardust).

1-900 (1994): Also known as 06, this drama/romance concerns a young, single woman who escapes her life through the fantasy of anonymous phone sex. But when the man she speaks to weekly wants more, their relationship takes a dangerous turn.

All three received limited releases to theaters in the U.S. in or around the years they were produced, all to positive reviews from critics and moviegoers.

Of the three films, only 1-900 has been previously issued in the U.S. on DVD.

In the 3 By Theo set, the movies are presented in Dutch with English subtitles.
