INT: Richard Kelly
I loved Richard Kelly’s DONNIE DARKO. It was a fascinating trip into the world of time travel and of course, scary bunny costumes. Yet SOUTHLAND TALES was a completely different experience. At times I thought it brilliant, and other times I found it ridiculous. I still feel there is something more than what I saw and actually plan to check it out again. Thus, I respect the fact that Richard wanted to make something completely different from anything else out at your local multiplex.
When I sat down with Richard, we talked a little about the Book of Revelations and the Apocalypse. We also got a chance to talk about working with Cameron Diaz in his upcoming feature THE BOX. He is a fascinating guy and he seems to have every idea as to what he is trying to say. Whether you like SOUTHLAND TALES or not, you’’ll remember it. And it’s clear that he knew exactly the story he was trying to tell. And if you want to hear his story, check out SOUTHLAND TALES, hopefully, at a theatre near you.
