There’s something absurd about it, that people go with hard earned cash into a darkened room, where they sit and they look at a crystalline screen upon which images move around and speak. And the reason that they don’t have light in the theater, is because you are there with your fantasy. The person up on the screen is doing all the things that you wanna do. They’re kissing the women that you wanna kiss, hitting the people that you wanna hit, being brave in a way that you want to be brave. The audience will lend themselves to the subject. They will create things that are not there
