    “Bjork video director has an Oscar. How that happen?”
    a) have you SEEN the Bjork video clips? They’re 4 minute masterpieces!
    b) He got it by helping Charlie Kaufman write one of the best screenplays of the last decade

    I really use the English language in ways that some
    people do not pick up on things. Go read it again
    and see if you get what I am aiming at. I posted
    it in glee, not in discorn. Jesus, I speak 1
    percenter English. Oy to the vey. Indeed.

“What Quibi trying to do is get to the next generation of film narrative. The first generation was movies, and they were principally two-hour stories that were designed to be watched in a single sitting in a movie theater [ED: After formats like the nickelodeon]. The next generation of film narrative was television, principally designed to be watched in one-hour chapters in front of a television set. I believe the third generation of film narrative will be a merging of those two ideas, which is to tell two-hour stories in chapters that are seven to ten minutes in length. We are actually doing long-form in bite-size.”

“The important thing is: what makes the audience interested in it? Of course, I don’t take on any roles that don’t interest me, or where I can’t find anything for myself in it. But I don’t like talking about that. If you go into a restaurant and you have been served an exquisite meal, you don’t need to know how the chef felt, or when he chose the vegetables on the market. I always feel a little like I would pull the rug out from under myself if I were to I speak about the background of my work. My explanations would come into conflict with the reason a movie is made in the first place — for the experience of the audience — and that, I would not want.
