Interesting stuff. Also, he discusses his new thing.
I knew I was right. As in he said 8 years ago that 'What I'm working on now is a romance. An oceanography prodigy falling for the daughter of a commodities trader. It's set at sea off the coast of Africa in Southern Asia.'
http://au.ign.com/articles/2004/10/21/ign-interviews-shane-carruth?page=3

But in the new interview it says:
"Mr. Carruth’s next project, “The Modern Ocean,” which he hopes to shoot this year, was conceived as a romance between an oceanographer and the daughter of a shipping magnate but has now “morphed into this other massive thing that is impossibly tragic,” he said. “I’m really curious about how far it can be pushed."

And there's a reference to PDL in there.

for the lazy, here's the shout out, which follows on directly from the bit Lottery quoted:

By “it,” he explained, he means a more exploratory approach to narrative, which he has found in movies as different as Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Punch-Drunk Love” and Steven Soderbergh’s “Solaris.”

this guy needs to start releasing more movies so he can get his proper dues. i haven't seen any of them (well the one available so far) and after all these interviews i already want to list him as one of my favourite living directors. he's like if Robert Rodriguez had turned out to be a good director.

He's basically a less wanky Peter Greenaway. I can't get enough of this guy.

There's that selfish and warm feeling when someone likes what you like. PDL was one of his favourite films around when Primer was out.

Here's the Carruth/UC cover story from Filmmaker Magazine. This really blew my mind. Bought tickets to the Sundance London screening and cannot wait. Hope he gets to make 'A Topiary'.

Great article, thanks for posting!

There's a nice Ghostboy shout-out on the fifth page of the article (not counting the cover).

Should I wait until after watching the film to read that?

It said a whole lot about the film, to the extent of technically spoiling it. However they maintain the film is near-impossible to spoil.
It's a good read but I would avoid it if you want to go in fresh.

It's not spoilery, I skipped over certain parts when they started getting into specifics though. The way he spoke about the subtext of the film, not many people make films with this kind of depth.

I'm really hoping this film is as amazing as the way he speaks of it, and the way he articulates in general.

Interview.


Quote
... I know that P.T. Anderson is one of, if not the greatest living American director. Maybe even just THE greatest director. I’m inspired by all of his work.

Good lad.

EDIT:

And another.

Quote from: Carruth
I had forgotten that I was following the script as I was shooting it. I was following my own instructions. I don’t know how things happen. I’m just an old man [laughs].

The way those sentences leap just makes my tummy tingle.
