The movies taught me everything that I believe. Like that the cops are evil and it’s us vs. them. And that if you love something you set it free. And that stories are best told in the retrospect by a man whose made peace with his demons.
They taught me there is always a road back. And reconciliation is always funny. And that people can dodge bullets. Politicians are always crooks, unless it’s a bio pic, then there’s one good one.
Love matters, eye for an eye makes the whole world blind, nothing can defeat the human spirit, family is a disease, family is the rock, family is complicated.
Everybody is wrong, directors are god. And the truth is just a writers version of the truth, that is after twelve re-writes and a number of thorough post production edits.
