Peter Greenaway Minces No Words

Peter Greenway, from a New York Observer Q&A by Alexandra Peers on the occasion of his multimedia recreation of Da Vinci’s “Last Supper” in New York: “There’s a phrase that says that to the young, there is no painting before Jackson Pollock and no cinema before Quentin Tarantino. I’m addressing questions of visual literacy. I take a missionary stance. I sincerely believe most people are visually illiterate. They do not know what they are looking at… Cinema is now wasted. Scorsese still makes the same film as Griffith’s.”

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
