“I prefer any day to be engaged, troubled and moved by something rather than to simply consume it. That engineered, feel-good opiate event —there’s so much disposable in our lives right now. In the past, I have equated “entertainment” with that disposable narcotic fantasy of cinema, the whole question of what that is is wrapped up in the motivation of making this movie.”
