Pick for 4.17.12 – “Bernie”

I don’t really think it’s dark. I mean, it’s described as a dark comedy only because there’s murder in it, the darkest subject you can think of. But Bernie’s life I don’t… it only had a few seconds of darkness.

Pick for 12/6/11 – “Young Adult”

And that’s what’s so brilliant about Charlize. She is the most beautiful human being I have ever met.  So intimidatingly beautiful that the first few times I met her I felt like a 12 year old.

Pick for 11/22/11 – “Albert Nobbs”

She’s a strange hybrid. She’s still very separate from her body. She’s more comfortable now in her guise as a man than she would as a woman. If she went into a dress she wouldn’t know how to behave. She’s caught in the middle. In the story, George Moore calls her a perhapser.

Pick for 11/15/11 – “My Week with Marilyn”

She is a very famous name and an incredibly famous face but people don’t really know the actor. They haven’t seen the movies nearly as much as they know who she is and they know the soap opera of her life.

Pick for 11/8/11 – “The Lady”

I lived and breathed her for the last four years. Everyday day, every night. I learned Burmese,. I slept with her, I woke up with her. Because it was necessary not just to mimic and give you a two-dimensional concept and feel for what she represented, of who she was, but to allow you to come into her world. A world so full of love and passion. I was submerged in it, I still think very much so.

Pick for 11/1/11 – “The Descendants”

I would say that’s pretty much the theme of all human experience, is it not? Fuck paradise? Isn’t that the theme of Adam and Eve? They’re given paradise and they fuck it up.
