    Was this all a view from a mirror in the room…?? If so, brilliant! Anyway, loved Another Earth, I was one that really connected with it and what they were trying to get across. I think Cahill and Marling are both brilliant, listening to them here (and at a Q&A I attended), they seem to truly have a passion for film making and a great perspective as to how or why a story should be told and how to approach telling it. Can’t wait to see what they do next. Also, awesome that he mentioned The Double Life of Véronique, because I always felt that a particular action Rhoda does at the end of the film was very much like that last scene in The Double Life of Veronique.

“The word I have fallen in love with lately is ‘Hellenic.’ Greek in its mythology. So while everyone is skewing towards the YouTube generation, here we are making two-and-a-half-hour movies and trying to buck the system. It’s become clear to me that we are never going to be a perfect fit with Hollywood; we will always be the renegade Texans running around trying to stir the pot. Really it’s not provocation for the sake of being provocative, but trying to make something that people fall in love with and has staying power. I think people are going to remember Dragged Across Concrete and these other movies decades from now. I do not believe that they will remember some of the stuff that big Hollywood has put out in the last couple of years. You’ve got to look at the independent space to find the movies that have been really special recently. Even though I don’t share the same world-view as some of my colleagues, I certainly respect the hell out of their movies which are way more fascinating than the stuff coming out of the studio system.”

“My first objective relationship in life was with the camera. I didn’t understand anything but then I realized the camera is my friend. It doesn’t lie to me. It doesn’t manipulate me. It only reports what I’m doing. And therefore, for me to work with a camera and the camera to be directed by an artist, a craftsman, someone who knows what he or she wants, I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
