They saw that marketing was a creative act that could be entertaining in and of itself ... They were thinking in a different way, trying something newer and maybe more radical with their approach. That broke the film out. It became something more like a cultural event.
When I bought the 7D, it was over Rs. 1 lakh though. It was expensive for me back then. Resolution really is over-rated. Look at Harmony Korine. I love his trash aesthetics. He shot a dogme film with really old VHS cameras called Julien Donkey Boy. He shot the film on VHS, played it on the screen and then shot the screen to get the high resolution required for projection.
You could say, hey, there's something ironic about it, and it does work in in that way, too ... but at the same time, within Alien's character, he completely 100 per cent believes in the power of that song and its sweetness. Where is the line between them? Well, that's the way the film was designed, that it's sort of up to the viewer. And hopefully everyone will have a different feeling about it. I wanted the movie to demand something from you; that you had to be receptive to it.More quotes »
