“So if I hate violence so much why did I do No Country For Old Men, right? I know, I know… But you should have seen me off camera, playing Anton on that movie… when the camera stopped rolling I would beg the Coen brothers, ‘Please take that gun out of my face guys, please.’ Man, they would be laughing their asses off. I mean, I love them; they’re geniuses. But it was tough. And I’ll never forgive them for that damn haircut.”

Feature films are suffering a kind of bad time right now, in my opinion, because the feature films that play in theaters are blockbusters. That seems to fill the theaters, but the art-house cinema is gone. If I made a feature film, it might play in L.A. and New York, a couple of other places, for a week in a little part of a cineplex, and then it would go who knows where. I built this to be on the big screen. It will be on a smaller screen, but it’s built for the big screen. You want a feature film to play on a big screen with big sound, and utilize all the best technology to make a world. It’s really tough after all that work to not get it in the theater. So I say that cable television is a new art house, and it’s good that it’s here.”
~ David Lynch

“The purpose of film isn’t to present the kindness of the world.”
