taking a long shot here reviving this thread... but the link doesn't work  :yabbse-undecided:

if it's an interview of PTA in 2009 or above I definitely would like to read it. I tried google and no luck...
anyway it was after i posted my first serious fanalysis. after the long post all he could say was that the main reason he wanted to see the master was cos of all the red heads.
  :P

I would also like to acquire this file, if someone who downloaded it the first time around wouldn't mind re-upping it.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

It works!

I wonder what this script fragment was...

Do you feel it’s important that your next film be markedly different from Boogie Nights? No. I think it’s important that I resist being influenced by people who encour- age me to make another Boogie Nights type of movie though, and I want to put the proper pair of horse blinders on. I try not to second guess my instincts, and at the moment I’m writing a part for Luis Guzman. As the character has developed, I’ve realized I’m basically writing Maurice [Guzman’s character in Boogie Nights] again. Part of me says, “wait a minute—you’re writing Mau- rice again,” but another part of me wants to explore this character more— maybe because Maurice got shortchanged in Boogie Nights. The new script is set in 1997, so maybe this is Maurice twenty years later.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

anyway it was after i posted my first serious fanalysis. after the long post all he could say was that the main reason he wanted to see the master was cos of all the red heads.

about that guzman segment..

the interview doesn't make it easy to figure out when the questions were asked.. the beginning of his section introduces the setting as "on the eve of magnolia's release" but the actual interview is made up of two separate pieces which the article states took place in 1998 and 2000. this means that the introduction to the whole thing, framed as "on the eve of magnolia's release" is actually taken from the introduction to the magnolia interview (2000), and since it goes on to state that it wasn't until LATE 1998 that the script for magnolia was finished, there is a bit of time travel directly following it as it launches into a PRE-magnolia interview.

this is corroborated by the noticeable split in the questions between the first half being entirely focused on boogie nights and the second which deals with magnolia.

so since his comments about guzman are within the boogie nights section of the interview i would say he's talking about Luis Guzman as Luis in magnolia.
endless 'nothing is what it seems'-isms

thanks detective P!
