an interview with cbdnkJune 29, 2012
CBDNK: what are your thoughts on ice cream?
Call the roller of big cigars,
The muscular one, and bid him whip
In kitchen cups concupiscent curds.
Let the wenches dawdle in such dress
As they are used to wear, and let the boys
Bring flowers in last month’s newspapers.
Let be be finale of seem.
The only emperor is the emperor of ice-cream.
Take from the dresser of deal,
Lacking the three glass knobs, that sheet
On which she embroidered fantails once
And spread it so as to cover her face.
If her horny feet protrude, they come
To show how cold she is, and dumb.
Let the lamp affix its beam.
The only emperor is the emperor of ice-cream
an interview with orson welles
ORSON WELLES: I was hoping that you were going to speak to me about the cinema in general and not about my work, because the truth is I don’t like talking about my work. Perhaps that’s why I don’t work enough! Well … For the theatre, you have just stated all that I have done in the last three years. In the cinema, you know what I have done, apart from those films that aren’t yet in distribution or finished, this includes my Moby Dick, my Don Quixote [unfinished] and my own version of Touch of Evil , because the editing of Touch of Evil, just like that of Mr. Arkadin, was in fact redone behind my back.
an interview with jean-luc godard
ELI HOLLANDER: In La Chinoise you used the actors very realistically, almost in the form of documentary. You even emphasized this by making the film self-conscious that it is a film. And yet one of your characters says that, even though it is only a film, he really believes what he’s saying. Now I presume some of the actors were not Marxist-Leninists –
JLG: None of them were.
