“As a storyteller, I’m driven by the question, ‘How do you get to be to who you are?”  Everyone comes into their own differently, and in doing so comes to establish their identity. (That said, I think we’re all forever works-in-progress.) I think it works collectively too. ‘We the people’ call ourselves ‘The United States of America.'”

“Joanna Kulig answers the door to her midtown Manhattan hotel room in the all-black uniform of the predawn SoulCycle devotee: sweat pants, puffer jacket, sensible shoes. Her face is bare, her short, blonde hair pulled unfussily back. There’s nothing in her appearance to betray the glamorous, tempestuous character she plays in Pawel Pawlikowski’s Cold War…”

Best Of Lists Begin: Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Wednesday, December 5th, 2018

“The word “resistance” has been central to political, intellectual, and, for that matter, moral life in the past two years, as policies of a sadistic fury and bullying remarks to match have issued from the seat of American power. Resistance takes many forms, including cinematic ones. But the cinema of resistance isn’t necessarily overtly political (though it may well be that, too—as in many of this year’s best films). Movies of resistance offer, foremost, aesthetic resistance: they resist the making of images and the telling of stories that take their own power for granted.”

Sorrentino On Bertolucci

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

“Bertolucci was an extremely curious man, sweet and sincere, cultured and unpredictable, and, I repeat, frighteningly intelligent. His was a free and razor-sharp intelligence, like that of a great jazz musician. He knew how to make people feel welcome, even the silly and the indolent. He would not fight them, but would study them. After a night out surrounded by fools he would sometimes phone me and, with a liberating laugh, tell me about their idiocy. But not in a way that was spiteful. Instead, he would describe how they might bend to his eventual, future, entirely artistic advantage.”
