Biography Interview Excerpts

Irvin Kershner
after the manic action of the first film. In an interview in Rolling Stone magazine in 1980, Kershner explained, “I wanna introduce some Zen here because I don’t want the kids to walk away just feeling that everything is shoot-em-up ... but that there’s also a little something to think about here in terms of yourself and your surroundings.” This awareness of the rhythms and tension necessary to make a work of art interesting is undeniably a product of his musical and artistic background.

Kershner continues to lecture at universities throughout the U.S.
