Bret Easton Ellis talks to Rolling Stone about The Canyons

Given that I wrote about “that New York Times Magazine article,” that Easton Ellis mentions in this Rolling Stone piece, I figured I should follow up.

I generally like reading Easton Ellis talk about movie making. I know this is obvious but it’s good to hear:

What’s your least favorite part of the movie-making process?
My least favorite part is that you have people putting in their two cents. It’s their job to do that, but it doesn’t make movies better. It just flattens them out and waters them down. But that seems to be retreating now. It’s going to go away because people have access to equipment – to cameras and to lenses and to making movies very cheaply.
