Ollie, Can You Hear Me?

Posted by on October 19 at 13:02 PM

An excerpt from an upcoming interview with Hany Abu-Assad, director of the verging-on-great suicide bomber drama Paradise Now:

“Movies shouldn’t have messages … they should raise questions, not tell you to think that or think this. Hopefully [my movie] is allowing you to have a dialogue with yourself, to make you want to know more, not to answer questions. I will leave messages for the postman.”

Anybody know of a way to pipe this into Oliver Stone’s ears while he sleeps? Assuming he ever actually does?
