Paddy Considine Interview
Paddy Considine: ‘Sometimes the world is quite a scary place for me’
addy Considine, born and still firmly ensconced in Burton upon Trent 44 years on, has always been a force to be reckoned with. On screen, whether terrifying (A Room For Romeo Brass, Dead Man’s Shoes) or hilarious (24 Hour Party People, Hot Fuzz), he’s a monster, and as director, the intensity is taken further yet. 2011’s Tyrannosaur, in part influenced by Considine’s own anger at the time, was all sorts of brutal and hurtfully raw. His new film, Journeyman, is decidedly not, though no less honest and brazenly emotional. A boxing fan for life, Considine didn’t want to fall into the genre’s usual trappings, and found himself writing about the impact of a ring-induced brain injury.
Considine, who also plays the lead role of middleweight champion Matty Burton, began planning a boxing film ten years ago, but it changed dramatically through the years, as did he. In 2011, he was diagnosed with Asperger’s and his life has substantially altered as a result, even more so since 2013, when he was diagnosed with Irlen Syndrome, which impacts how the brain processes visual stimulation (he now wears Irlen contact lenses to help). We met him in Soho to talk about Journeyman’s DNA.
Journeyman is quite devastating; there were tears. What’s that like for you to see people reacting so emotionally to something you’ve been working on for so many years?
It’s great, because it’s just that validation that you’re doing something worthwhile. There aren’t many stories in films that leave a massive impact on me. I think stories like Journeyman are getting lost a little bit somehow. It’s almost like sometimes people are so ashamed to be so naked and raw with emotions. I remember watching The Champ when I was a kid with my family. I was crying but I was trying to hide it, but my mum was in bits, and my other family members were crying too and that was the first time I thought, “God, this medium can really affect people’s emotions.” And the more films I watched as I grew up, it was always stories like The Elephant Man and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest that stayed with me. The original Rocky is a beautiful, beautiful film. With Journeyman, I just wanted to tell a story where people would actually feel something. I’ve had people watch the film and say, “I’ve had to go straight home and tell my wife how much I love her and how much I take her for granted.” Great, if this story reminds you that you’re a human being, an emotional creature, then that’s a victory isn’t it?
Yes. Your film is not afraid to tug at heartstrings and just lay it all out on the table. And it’s not always fashionable to do that.
You’ve said that you live in a constant state of anxiety, thinking that something awful might happen to you or your family. And that’s exactly what happens in the film. Did that come out subconsciously when you wrote the story or did you want to explore it?
You’re writing about a fighter who has a brain injury. That’s something that happens in life and you have to be careful that you’re not equating your experiences to that of somebody who’s been through a trauma. But, for me, the grain of my personal experience that I’ve brought to the “character”, in inverted commas, of Matty, is a kind of frustration, and inner frustration that I have. On the outside it wouldn’t seem like it, but I find social situations really awkward and very daunting, so as a result I won’t go to certain events. If I play a gig with my band, I go in the door and I play the gig then I go out the door. I’m in and out. Sometimes the world is quite a scary place for me and I feel that sometimes there are things that people find very basic, like walking past their neighbours and saying “Good morning” that I for some reason find really difficult and daunting sometimes. I think there was a certain loss of myself in my thirties, where it all came to a critical point with me and I just had to accept the things that I was feeling and figure out how I was gonna live the rest of my life. So I made certain changes in order to be able to be sitting here today presenting this film.
You said “character” in inverted commas there, is that because of an overlap between you and Matty?
meeting I said, “I don’t want a picture of me with a cut eye, standing across the room with boxing gloves.” Because I’d gone on the tube and seen a massive poster for a film called Bleed For This and I just went, “I’m not having that.” It’s not going to work. If you made a film that involves boxing and the narrative is what fantastic shape the lead actor got himself into, then that’s telling me that you don’t believe that greatly in the story that you told, that you’re looking for those surface angles. I took control of the poster for Journeyman. I had to, because I thought it was really important to have a beautiful piece of art and a striking image. So I approached Dan McCarthy, this wonderful artist in America who’d done the poster for Tyrannosaur. While we were shooting Journeyman, I’d spoken about the trees in the film and that they look like your brain. There’s little branches in your brain and we’re just all these organic creatures and who we are is reflected in nature around us… I gave Anthony Welsh [who plays Andre] this whole spiel and he sent me this illustration of somebody’s meditative mind with a tree in it and a bird and it was beautiful. It resonated and I thought, “We gotta do something with that.” Dan did a fantastic job.
You’re a massive Rocky fan. Hypothetically, let’s say for a Creedsequel, Matty Burton could fight Adonis Creed, with Rocky training from the ropes – would you be up for it? You’d be in a film with Rocky.
And I’d go over and say, “Rocky, you’re the reason I became a fighter.”
