Definitely the loosest and openest we've heard him since probably the Boogie Nights commentary.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Foster Wallace as his teacher at Emerson?! That part blew me away. fuck. that is so cool

Yeah, I had the same reaction.

I remember coming across a message board thread years ago, and the topic was about pairing up directors with their literary analogues. Someone paired up PTA with DFW. I've noticed the comparison elsewhere over the years, too, but I don't know enough about Wallace's work to thoroughly comment on the supposed connection. However, I have read Wallace's fantastic essay, "Big Red Son," which is about the pornography industry and his visit to the AVN Awards. He actually mentions Anderson and Boogie Nights in that essay.

Also, I know that Wallace was an instrumental figure in the conception of "New Sincerity." The connection between this concept (which entails the creation of works of art that expressly refuse cynicism, detached irony, etc.,) and filmmakers like Anderson are pretty obvious, and this has been discussed in academic articles. Because of all of this, DFW and PTA have been vaguely linked in my head for a while. So, finding out that the former taught the latter struck me as both surprising and totally appropriate. A neat piece of information, for sure.

Anyone know if the C&RV site is going to do a series of interviews for IV with key production players like they did with The Master?

Totally possible but I doubt it? I did them for The Master but that film seemed to have a lot less press than this one does and for IV it feels like most of the key dept. heads have already been interviewed someplace else. The only stuff I'd really want to hear from PTA is if there was much other stuff from the book was shot but cut and if he realizes the extent to which his films challenge audiences. But if they do one, I'd read it.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

props for that modage, they were all great reads. since you did it for The Master why can't you do it for IV? I'm sure the board can come up with a few dozen never-before-asked questions.

I don't write there anymore. But like I said, fingers crossed, maybe they're working on it.

Good interview with DAZED.

PTA talks about JAWS/the sea, Wes/BUDAPEST ("No matter what anyone has to say about Wes Anderson, you can’t fault that movie"), Cruise/TOMORROW and QT's "retirement."
