“Very often my films are about the conflict between our ideas and our desires, and that’s where the drama is for me. We know how we’re supposed to act, but we’re constantly in rebellion against the things we’ve been taught, and our hearts and bodies are telling us other things. That’s true from Body Heat right through to Wyatt Earp–you have an idea of how you should live your life, but it’s very difficult to live up to that. That’s the material that interests me.” —Lawrence Kasdan (writer, The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Arc, Body Heat, etc)
Are you tired of every new comedy using white suburbanites walking in-slow mo to rap music?
Obviously somebody in Hollywood thinks it works.
I’m not a fan and think it’s a cheap laugh, but then again, I was raised on Abbot and Costello and the Marx Brothers, so maybe my barometer for humor is a tad skewed.
