Paranoids

March 4, 2008

Author Blake Nelson conducted an interview with director Gus Van Sant about the movie Paranoid Park in the Sunday New York Times.  Here’s the link to the article.  

 *Imagine here me speaking in valley girl*

“At first I was like huh, what? Omigod, Blake Nelson is the author of Paranoid Park what’s he doing interviewing Gus Van Sant?  Isn’t that like J.R.R. Tolkein interviewing Peter Jackson?” 

Then I thought a bit about interviewing and writing.  As an amateur blogger/writer it’s pretty neat to interview someone.  There’s an indescribable excitment, thrill, and sense of cache after interviewing someone you respect.  Interviewing brings a new layer to a book, movie, or personality.  You get an inside scoop on the stories behind the stories.  On that note, I’m looking forward to the SBBT.

    I loved that interview! And the stills from the movie look fairly gritty and …paranoidesque. I hope it does that book justice; I really enjoyed it.
