can anyone do a proper translation?>

q:Your films are held in the past. Is this the way to talk about this?
pta: I have nostalgia for the past. This could be a disease. At a time of depression were said to be nostalgic ...

q: Are you seriously unless we imagine?
pta:This film is very déconnant.[?] They say funny people on stage are sinister in life. Maybe is it true in reverse for serious filmmakers said. I am in good spirits most of the time. I watch movies at home are generally short and comical. And I tend to make long and serious films.

Your movies are period pieces/set in the past. Is that a way for you to talk about the present?
I am nostalgic about the past. It might be pathological, really. Back in the day, people with depression were labeled as nostalgic...

Are you less serious than we think?
This film is pretty wacky. They say people who are funny on stage are quite sinister in real life. Perhaps the opposite is true for directors who are perceived as serious. I'm in a good mood most of the time. The movies I watch at home are mostly short, funny ones. And yet I tend to make long, serious movies.

I've got so much interview to give, I just don't know where to put it.

This is over two years old, but whatever.  And actually, I don't think it's an interview, but a collection of quotes and the movies they reference.  There are some standouts that seem to have been omitted, but still, it's nice to peruse.

Bridge of Spies Q&A with Spielberg moderated by PT

watched this btw, thanks. i like how they're comfortable being movie nerds. a sad fact i know for certain is some PTA fans are fucking terrible movie nerds, since they think their PTA fandom is what makes them a movie nerd and, it's like, what do you say to that, you can try to tell them to listen to PTA but if he doesn't mention a title it won't help. genuinely not a description of a single person here, only a description of my irl encounters in LA with a certain type of PTA fan.

saying i'm super glad it's easy for Spielberg and PTA to chat movies and i enjoyed hearing them do so. i predict i'll best remember how Spielberg gushed over Michael Curtiz, Steven Soderbergh, and PTA. since he's a movie nerd <3. well actually he was talking about Soderbergh's tv show. represent.

PT: What’s happening next?

Adam McKay: I’m talking with Farrell and John C. Reilly about doing a comedy about two guys that go down to defend America’s borders against the immigrants…

Please please please let this happen

There was another list about his "favorite" films but I can't find it.
Does anyone remember it?

EDIT
I think I found it, it was the Cigs&Red Vines PTA Picks. Unfortunately the links are all down even with the adblocker disabled. Oh well.
