“Too much looking back like this isn’t good for your health. Your brain starts to itch. Yeah, yeah, you know… seeing how far you can push ourself out in the ocean before you get really scared that you can’t see the shoreline. And you’re just thrilling yourself, and it’s starting to get dark out, and the sun is setting—you can see the moon coming out—and that is a thrilling, nerve-wracking place to be, and addicting… Dummies that we are, we keep coming back again and again for that feeling, that comforting panic. I can’t wait. Can. Not. Wait.”
~ Paul Thomas Anderson to Steve Erickson in Los Angeles magazine, January 2015

“Any time a movie causes a country to threaten nuclear retaliation, the higher-ups wanna get in a room with you… In terms of getting the word out about the movie, it’s not bad. If they actually make good on it, it would be bad for the world—but luckily that doesn’t seem like their style… We’ll make a movie that maybe for two seconds will make some 18-year-old think about North Korea in a way he never would have otherwise. Or who knows? We were told one of the reasons they’re so against the movie is that they’re afraid it’ll actually get into North Korea. They do have bootlegs and stuff. Maybe the tapes will make their way to North Korea and cause a fucking revolution. At best, it will cause a country to be free, and at worst, it will cause a nuclear war. Big margin with this movie.”
