Warren Ellis In The Pink Over WGA

Writer Warren Ellis, whose “RED” was basis for the current film, gets a cert in the mail. “Membership of the Guild is a necessity for working with major studio… It wasn’t something I was given a choice in. And there’s a lot about the WGA I’m not thrilled by. That said… I now have this stuck above my desk. There’s a peculiar pleasure in it. When you’re a kid reading about these people, living in a 6′ by 6′ bedsit in the shit end of Essex and eating once a day if you’re lucky, wondering what it was really like to be those people and do those things… it’s an interesting thing, to become one of those people. I like being a member of the WGAw.”

“Tarkovsky was sitting in the corner of the screening room watching the film with me, but he got up as soon as the film was over and looked at me with a shy smile. I said to him, ‘It’s very good. It’s a frightening movie.’ He seemed embarrassed but smiled happily. Then the two of us went to a film union restaurant and toasted with vodka. Tarkovsky, who does not usually drink, got completely drunk and cut off the speakers at the restaurant, then began singing the theme of Seven Samurai at the top of his voice. I joined in, eager to keep up. At that moment, I was very happy to be on Earth.”

“Women’s power is too potent to waste on selfies… Truly dangerous women aren’t looking for dates or husbands, and they do not travel in packs. They rarely have many female friends. Their register is either universal, or intensely personal. They play mind games and make promises. Whether they deliver or not remains a secret, and secrets are essential to seduction. The Web has eroded every notion of privacy and stolen the real power of women: the threat of mystery itself.  “I can see you’re trouble” was once the biggest compliment a man could pay a woman. There was going to be a dark spiral into the whirlpool of sex; there were going to be tears on both sides, secrets and regrets, scandal. Today, everyone is trouble.”
~ Joan Juliet Buck in “W”
