chuckpalahniuk:

No, please let me answer this one for the one million-th time….   It was marvelous.  Inspired.  No one but Fincher could’ve communicated the story and tone so well.  Death and sex and humor.  It will be a classic.

A Western is identifiable by people on horseback in the West, and a musical involves singing and dancing. But what characterizes film noir? Richard Brody on the elusive genre: http://nyr.kr/1A6z3wz

“The term ‘film noir’ has come down to us as a product of a subordinate strain of French criticism, different from the one that came to dominate cinematic discourse with the concept of auteurism, as well as to dominate filmmaking itself through the innovations of the New Wave. It had no currency among Hollywood filmmakers of the forties and fifties, for the simple reason that French criticism over-all had little influence in the U.S. until the rise of the New Wave.”

I’d never taken a drug before Gummo, but as soon as that was over I started flirting with heroin, because making films was all I ever wanted, and once that was done I was just bored. And my problems, my violence, they all stem from boredom, and when I did that drug it was the first time I could just sit and feel blissful, you know? But in the end it’s a lie. So I went back to the anger. And I’m comfortable knowing that without the work I’d kill myself, because I feel like I’m here for one reason, and that’s to create.
