    she’s such a cutie-pie. seems a normal, clever, level-headed kid

  3. I enjoyed this very much. She was so spontaneous and authentic. Very present, right in the moment. I appreciated her outright honesty about Hollywood. (Doesnt everyone feel that way? I sure do.) It’s pretty obvious, right here; why she is such a good actress. She is not afraid to be what is, who she is, and absolutely accurate in her communication about it. She isn’t tainting her answers or her attitude, with any agenda. Nor any care about “the right answer”. No sales or marketing toward Oscar points. She’s not even being , commonly, flirty. This is actually a rich little rare nugget of an interview.

    This comes in the mail today and I can’t wait to watch this. Hopefully Hollywood is able to find projects that will support her talent, we seem to get one of these It Girls every two years or so and would love to see her be able to build on her acclaim like Page and Mulligan instead of drift off to the margins like Abbie Cornish, Emily Blunt, or Eva Green.

    she was great as the young Charleze in The Burning Plain

    i noticed that the dp/30 with actors under 30 are just more
    fun .. so this is like Emma Stone DP/30 part 2 without Emma

    do you think she’ll even remember this interview by the time she has to do 100 interviews for the next xmen movie
    with the comic con crowd ?

“Well, actually, of that whole group that I call the post-60s anti-authority auteurs, a lot of them came from television. Peckinpah’s the only one whose television work represents his feature work. I mean, like the only one. Mark Rydell can direct a really good episode of ‘Gunsmoke’ and Michael Ritchie can direct a really good episode of ‘The Big Valley,’ but they don’t necessarily look like The Candidate. But Peckinpah’s stuff, even the scripts he wrote that he didn’t even direct, have a Peckinpah feel – the way I think there’s a Corbucci West – suggest a Peckinpah West. That even in his random episodes that he wrote for ‘Gunsmoke’ – it’s right there.”
~ Quentin Tarantino

“The thought is interrupted by an odd interlude. We are speaking in the side room of Casita, a swish and fairly busy Italian bistro in Aoyama – a district of Tokyo usually so replete with celebrities that they spark minimal fuss. Kojima’s fame, however, exceeds normal limits and adoring staff have worked out who their guest is. He stops mid-sentence and points up towards the speakers, delighted. The soft jazz that had been playing discreetly across the restaurant’s dark, hardwood interior has suddenly been replaced with the theme music from some of Kojima’s hit games. Harry Gregson-Williams’ music is sublime in its context but ‘Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots’ is not, Kojima acknowledges, terribly restauranty. He pauses, adjusting a pair of large, blue-framed glasses of his own design, and returns to the way in which games have not only influenced films, but have also changed the way in which people watch them. “There are stories being told [in cinema] that my generation may find surprising but which the gamer generation doesn’t find weird at all,” he says.
