Patricia Louisianna Knop,

Goodbye to Patricia Louisianna Knop, screenwriter of 9 1/2 Weeks, Wild Orchid, Siesta, Red Shoe Diaries, and Delta of Venus.

“It’s hardly news that this director sees no divide between movies and life, but this marks the first time he has turned that elision into the subject of an entire film. Cinema and reality bleed into one another in every frame.”

Tarantino Checks In At “Tarantina” Burlesque

“Quentin was practically face-to-face with each performer on the ground-level stage, so the pressure was definitely on. It was a huge relief to me that from the very first act on he seemed to really be enjoying himself and emoting along with the acts — nodding, clapping, laughing, throwing his hands up.

Quote Unquotesee all »

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”
~ László Krasznahorkai

Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.

~ Donald Trump
