Growing up I had planned on being a comic book artist, but at some point decided it’d be a little lonely spending all day in front of a drawing board by myself while filmmaking seemed like going on an adventure with a crazy group of friends. But years later I found myself working on this film alone in front of the computer for weeks on end, so joke’s on me.
Of course THIS story, about how one film has managed to inspire so much speculation and become so important to people couldn’t really make sense in any other medium; I needed a movie to talk about a movie.
