Quote of the Day, Jr.
"I didn't at all find on the screen the emotion of the script, which is the most magnificent one that I've ever read. A clearer and more conventional narrative would have helped the film without, in my opinion, lessening its beauty and its impact. Frankly, I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing there and what I was supposed to add in that context! What's more, Terry himself never managed to explain it to me clearly."
-- Sean Penn, expressing his disapproval with the final cut of Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life
You know, Sean, you pompous tool, the default position with most of America is not caring one bit what you think. This kind of bullshit is why. Malick is a genius; you're a jackass. He doesn't have to explain a damn thing to you. Shut up and act.
