Interviews

New York-based interviewer, features writer and film critic who joined Moviehole in 2012. In her short time on the site she has already spoken to a horde of A-listers including Keira Knightley, Patrick Wilson and Meryl Streep.

Alex Karpovsky Talks ‘Rubberneck,’ ‘Red Flag,’ and Working With Lena Dunham on ‘Girls’

Alex Karpovsky, known for his role as the brutally honest barista, Ray, in the hit HBO series “Girls,” is an emerging talent to watch.

The accomplished writer/director/actor is set to release two new films on February 22. “Rubberneck,” which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, centers on a man who harbors an unsettling obsession with his co-worker (Jaime Ray Newman). The haunting thriller’s riveting premise and thought provoking conclusion are a testament to the Brooklynite’s tremendous talent.

The off-beat comedy “Red Flag” offers a stark contrast to “Rubberneck.” Seemingly influenced by the mumblecore sub-genre, the heartfelt indie focuses on a filmmaker who travels the country promoting his work while trying to burry the pain of a recent breakup.

Moviehole had the chance to chat with Karpovsky about his creative process, the film festival circuit, and how meeting Lena Dunham led to being on “Girls.”

“Rubberneck” and “Red Flag” will play at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center as a double feature starting on February 22, but also will be available On Demand starting on February 19.
