It’s the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were invented. They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and how to look how you feel about it.
The movies have got more corporate, they’re making fewer movies in general, and those they are making are all $200-$300m tent-pole releases that eat up all the oxygen.
Critics can be harsh and I think it’s going to take me a long time to make people see what I have inside of me and that I really put my guts into movies and that I’m not superficial and that I’m not just a pretty face.
People talk about mumblecore but I prefer bumblecore, hyper-realistic bee movies about how bees really are.
