TWO’S COMPANY, THREE’S A SHOW
Maureen Dowd – September 5, 2013
Mr. Craig says they are determined to drag the play from the mannered place it tends to go and find “the guts” of Pinter’s brutality, masked as conversations about squash and Yeats and Torcello and the trouble with modern prose. He wants it to show how the characters are damaging each other — that “they love each other, but they do this.”
THE VULNERABLE MR. BOND
Maureen Dowd – September 6, 2013
Mr. Craig says he thinks the era of “Betrayal” — about an affair and its aftermath that goes from 1968 to 1977 in reverse — was a sexier time, before the world was full of leering smartphone cameras and people staring at little screens, when they still had the “pip pip pips” talked about in the play: the coins dropping into a phone booth for a “crafty telephone call,” as Harold Pinter wrote, from a pub or restaurant to make an excuse about coming home late.

JAMES MURPHY ON SOUNDTRACKING DANIEL CRAIG AND THE FUTURE OF DESPACIO
Tom Banham – August 16, 2013
When progressive New York disco punks LCD Soundsystem hung up their synthesisers in 2011, frontman James Murphy said it was because the band was “stopping him from doing other things I want to do.” Those things, as it turned out, included spells behind the mixing desk for Pulp and Arcade Fire – whose new album, possibly something to do with this peculiar Reflektors campaign, is due out on 29 October – and crafting the music for Mike Nichols’ much-anticipated New York revival of Pinter’s Betrayal, starring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall.
