I want to try not to repeat myself. But then I seem to do it continuously in my films. It’s not something I make any effort to do. I just want to make films that are personal, but interesting to an audience. I feel I get criticized for style over substance, and for details that get in the way of the characters. But every decision I make is how to bring those characters forward. – Wes Anderson

Hasn’t this cat got anything better to do? Couldn’t you give him something to read?

“She started writing notes and keeping them under her pillow, and then she started writing them on her pillowcase, hoping they would help her have better dreams. And if she couldn’t sleep, she could just read them and be reminded of something so stunningly beautiful that her heart would swell and her bones would sigh and for just a second, the world would not seem like it was going to crush her.”

“It doesn’t even matter if it is ever visibly on screen, but I always want my characters to be carrying a book. A novel. In their handbags, or their inside pockets, it doesn’t matter. I just like the idea of a character, whose story is playing out, to simultaneously be captured within the world of another story. One they might read bits of while waiting on a train, or going to bed at night. To me, it adds to their magic. Do you know that scene in The Shining, when you can see Wendy is reading The Catcher in the Rye? It’s so powerful. It says so much.”

It is a restless moment. She has kept her head lowered… to give him a chance to come closer. But he could not, for lack of courage. She turns and walks away.
