“I think that throughout history, an error has been reaffirmed in relation to literature, cinema, and everything that emerges as a personal expression. And it was when we started talking about style as something independent in the process of doing. Perhaps it’s a misunderstanding that arose with the birth of religious and palatial architecture. The look of the films is something that can’t be determined a priori of the rest of its conception. Even for me it’s difficult to distinguish the difference between my films and others, just because of their look. I can say that I acknowledge that my films and many others from other directors don’t affirm reality, they rather question it. Question what we call natural. What seems to have arisen without the will of anyone in particular.”

“That’s the joke of Prune, that we just pretend to be a restaurant. But we’re actually an institute for living. We hide behind the fried eggs, and we hide behind the marrow bones, but really what we’re doing here is trying to change the whole goddamn world, one lamb chop at a time. It’s slow going, but I think we’re getting there.”
~ Gabrielle Hamilton

“I’m into pleasure rebellion,” she says, lighting a cigarette. “I’ve shared all my misery and tragedy but in my personal life I’m a cheerleader, an optimist. That aspect of myself is not shared. Once you are free from trauma, you are going to luxuriate in pleasure and happiness – personal pleasure. A divine gluttony, I should say.”
