Film interviews these days tend to be corporate, sanitised, played out against movie poster backdrops, with marketing flunkies hovering in the wings to make sure you don’t stray ‘off topic’ — i.e. the product at hand.

None of that with Jeff Goldblum, who bursts on to my computer screen smiling and bespectacled, a little off kilter and all the better for it. “How are you, so nice to see you, thanks for doing this,” he says, his politeness real, not forced.
