Couldn’t be crazier about her. Writing (and producing & starring in) one wildly original film after another? She’s like a big amazing studio inside one human body. One of my favorite people making art today.

Director Martin Scorsese claims that the most important shot in the movie is when Bickle is on the phone trying to get another date with Betsy. The camera moves to the side slowly and pans down the long, empty hallway next to Bickle, as if to suggest that the phone conversation is too painful and pathetic to bear. [x]

“It’s true that a lot of people are hiding behind the work. You can easily do that. You can hide behind words, or so much fantasy creation. I’ve always been more interested in how to reveal. When I feel my cheeks burning with shame, I know that I’m really acting or writing something that’s getting close to a truth. I remember when we were writing the scenes about Rhoda confessing to him, finally, what she’s done. And I remember trying to think, “How does somebody really go about telling this?” And I was like, “Oh my god, she can’t tell it in the first person.” She can’t bear to tell him the truth in the first person. She starts in the third person and she tells it as a story. I started writing, and I remember feeling my cheeks get red and hot. That, to me, is the litmus test of oh my god, this is how you would do it, and your body has a physiological response because it knows that it’s real. You’re not thinking anymore. When that occurs, that is pretty damn awesome.
I remember, I think it happened during this movie too. The scene where Karen finds him masturbating to the photos of Sofi. I remember thinking about all the ways that you respond to something like that happening. But what came up in the moment, after we talked a bit, was I was suddenly turned on by how erotic the intimacy was with my husband that we had gotten to the other side of this thing. I had said things, and he had said things that had been underneath our marriage for years, that we’d never said. In the aftermath of that, it’s actually intensely erotic. And then you feel yourself get flushed in the cheeks and your body responds because you’re stumbling into something true in a scene that you didn’t necessarily even find in the script phase or the rehearsals. Yeah, I like what you’re saying. You can hide in the work, but it’s better if you can reveal. Definitely.”

Brit is amazing, and I can’t wait to see this film.
Hill’s the best, and I’m lucky to call her my friend.

when watching stories we tell, it’s always winter and you’ve just returned in from the cold to a place that smells like the memory of home.
Perfectly said/ perfect film.
