Jane Campion Converts

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

“The really clever people used to do film. Now, the really clever people do television. I’d been feeling, in the film world, that if you come up with ideas, and you share them, the first concern is: how is the audience going to react? Cinema in Australia and NZ has become much more mainstream. It’s broad entertainment, broad sympathy. It’s just not my kind of thing. As a goal, to make money out of entertaining doesn’t inspire me. But in television, there is no concern about politeness or pleasing the audience. It feels like creative freedom.”

Patrick Malone On “Sex, Desecration And Shame In Terrence Malick’s Song To Song”

Friday, July 21st, 2017

“Faye’s shame is healthy, making her understand that she does have a soul, that she has personal dignity, as she would not be ashamed by her objectification if she were truly an object. Her shame, once she does not try to downplay her sin, opens her to BV’s mercy. And being open to BV’s mercy opens her to God’s. Her healthy shame brings about her conversion to a truer love.”
