    Wow That’s a heavyweight’s greatest hits knockout reel. Things I learned:
    Fiona Apple has hip bones and they are nice.
    David Bowie worries about the pain in his knees.
    Johnny Cash had humility forced on him by encroaching old age (don’t we all).
    Jay Z; it took 57 shots to bring him down.
    …watching it once.

    There are times when I am convinced that Romanek’s video for Johnny Cash’s “hurt” is the greatest music video of all time. And not just because both Johnny and June (who look very frail) died not terribly long after it was made.

“I am just grateful I am still around. I would love to be Steven Soderbergh, but I am lucky to be Joe Swanberg. Actors want to work with me, people want to give me money, and my nightmare scenario remains: Getting in bed with a studio, spending years on a movie, and it turns out horrible, but now I’m rich.”

Actually, by Hollywood standards, you’re right, I said. That is unambitious.

“It is, and yet, if you can go to bed happy at night, doing what you want, isn’t that ambition for a lifetime?”

“In retrospect, nothing of that kind surprised me about Philip, because his intuition was luminous from the instant you met him. So was his intelligence. A lot of actors act intelligent, but Philip was the real thing: a shining, artistic polymath with an intelligence that came at you like a pair of headlights and enveloped you from the moment he grabbed your hand, put a huge arm round your neck and shoved a cheek against yours; or if the mood took him, hugged you to him like a big, pudgy schoolboy, then stood and beamed at you while he took stock of the effect.”
