    Control director Anton Corbijn's second feature The American is a suspence-stroke-thriller-stroke-character-study-stroke-Western. Half soulful mood piece, half moving hitman drama, one thing it's not is easy to define. We chatted to Corbijn about the man at its heart, George Clooney's Mr. Butterfly, a weapons specialist looking for a way out. The lovely Violante Placido also stopped by to tell us about the movie's spaghetti influences. That's spaghetti as in Sergio Leone, not spaghetti as in Chef Boyardee. She didn't know anything about him. ;
