Interview: Destroyer Director Karyn Kusama Discusses the Complex Movie

Karyn Kusama has continually put out work that shows her brilliance as a director and has a very clear message to her audience. With such movies as Jennifer’s Body and The Invitation, she brings strong characters to the screen in a way that forces the audience to care about what’s happening in their story.
Her latest work comes in the form of Destroyer, following the story of LAPD Detective Erin Bell (Nicole Kidman) as she navigates her past and what it means to struggle with what she did long ago, and what she has to do to rectify her situation. I had the chance to sit down with Kusama to talk about the film and what it means to bring a story like this to life.
