DP/30: Drive, actor Albert Brooks

We are thrilled to be able to bring you a half hour chat with the legendary Albert Brooks. We shot this just yesterday, post-SAG, pre-Globes. The chat may be less often funny than you’d expect, but the man of ideas has always been there behind the laughs, which is why we all remember so much of what he’s written and said over these last 40 years.

Other recent interviews include the director of Drive, Nicolas Winding Refn, a pair of animated directors (Kung Fu Panda 2 and Rio), almost a full hour with the director and the writer of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, plus The Brothers Dardennes, whose The Kid With The Bike is grabbing awards and nominations all over the country.

But start with the Albert… you’ll be glad you did.

“If there are theories about me, I’d rather not know. Astrophysics – now that’s fascinating. String theory, worm holes, the expanding universe, the Big Bang versus the Big Bounce – those are the kind of theories that make you feel like living and understanding the mystery of the world. Film theory is just a pain in the ass.”
~ Claire Denis

“I had a knockoff Michael Kors bag that said MLK instead of MK. Jada told me that I shouldn’t have knockoff stuff. I told her that my philosophy is, Whatever the bag costs, I should be able to keep that amount of cash in the bag. If it’s a $300 purse, I have to put $300 in cash in that purse. I do not want a bag that is more expensive than the cash I have to put in it. Things are going good for me now, so I am graduating to your Fendis and your Guccis. But I better have the cash equivalent, or I’m not buying the purse. And if things start to go wrong, I’m going right back to my knockoffs. When you’re somebody like me, who’s been homeless, clothes are not that important. Clothes are not a roof over my head, food in my ­stomach, my family’s health—that’s what money is for. But fashion helps get more money. So, we ride.”
