Trisha’s Quote of the Day: How to foretell your own doom

“Most of my films have disturbed people,” he says. “They are being taken down roads they don’t want to be taken down. That’s why they get angry. They go to films to be reassured — the car chase, the fireball, like pop songs they are comfortable with. One of the reasons I was never into drugs was that when kids in the Sixties were taking acid and telling me about their experiences, I would say, ‘Well, I see the world like that anyway!'”

—Terry Gilliam, on why he doesn’t think his movies can ever be real commercial successes.

[Incidentally, I can never see Twelve Monkeys ever again because of how bleak it is. It’s a brilliant movie and I loved every bit of it, but once was enough for me.]
