Quote from: Spike
Trier and PTA look like freakin' bums on the last pic.  :-D


Don't all directors, when you get down to it?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

god, Von Trier seems like such a prick.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I've only just found out about this, I'm half-way through but already i'd like to thank Ono for this, you really made my day. It must have been a shit load of work
You are the man!

Two of my favourite directors face to face....It's just too good.
Are there anymore of these? kitano-tarantino sort of thing?
I didn't even know they made these.
"In Serbia a lot of people hate me because they want to westernise, not understanding that the western world is bipolar, with very good things and very bad things. Since they don't have experience of the west, they even believe that western shit is pie."

I know of a Wes Anderson-Scorsese one, a Harmony Korine-Herzog one, a Truffaut-Hitchcock one and a Woody Allen-Godard one. I haven't read them all but I know they're all out there. It's probably my favorite type of interview.

Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.
