Olivier Assayas On Themes In Personal Shopper

“The connected world is not just about connection; it’s also about an extension of our own brains, of our own emotions, of our inner feelings. We all have phones, which are like a part of us, hardwired in our brains. So of course, the way we mourn, the way we relate to the invisible, the way we relate to some kind of fantasy world is transformed, is complexified by the way we constantly communicate. It’s a fact of modern life, and it raises a question — if we’re connected with whatever we used to call the supernatural, whatever we used to call the paranormal, all of a sudden the borders become porous. They become blurred.”

Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
