THR’s “The Directors: Full Uncensored Interview” With Lee, Russell, Hooper, Van Sant, Affleck, QT (1″01’02”)

Let’s just sample some Quen-teen: “When I’m writing, it’s about the page. It’s not about the movie. It’s about the literature of me putting my pen to paper and writing a good page, and making it work completely. Now it’s mine to fuck up if I go forward with it I always go forward with it. But I want to love that script so much that I’m tempted to stop. There’s stuff that’s in the script that I know will never ever make the movie, but it just makes the book—the piece of literature—better. It’s a better read. It’s more emotionally satisfying. Then just like you do with an adaptation, you peel a lot of that stuff away.”

“To me, there was a deep confusion that still persists,” Morris told the crowd, “and I don’t know what you can do to disabuse people of this notion. I suppose you could hit them in the head with a large piece of lumber, but I’m not sure that would do the trick. It’s a simple rule: Style doesn’t guarantee truth. Truth is something far more elusive. Truth is a quest; you pursue truth. You go after it, you try to uncover it, because we all know that we live in a sea of falsehood. I mean, there shouldn’t be any tool that should be unavailable to you in the pursuit of truth.”
~ Errol Morris

“I hang out with highbrow people and I have on certain occasions earned my living with non-highbrow people. I don’t know what I am. A highbrow wannabe? I’m a groupie of intellectuals. I try to hang around them but maybe I am a clown who enjoys the company of intellectuals. Or maybe I’m a semi-intellectual who likes to hang out with clowns.”
~ Wallace Shawn
