“I feel like I’m an orchestra conductor and the audience are my instruments. So it’s like ‘Laugh, laugh! Stop laughing! Stop laughing… Now be horrified, be horrified! Be horrified! … Laugh!’ That’s what I get off on. When a film does that to me, I know I’ve had a good time at the cinema.”
Quentin Tarantino (pictured, with Amanda Plummer and Tim Roth, on the set of Pulp Fiction)
You see, this profession is filled to the brim with unrealistic motherfuckers. Motherfuckers who thought their ass would age like wine. If you mean it turns to vinegar, it does. If you mean it gets better with age, it don’t.
