“I’m kind of like my own Mafia. You know, breaking my own knees.”
The Golden Greek. The original Independent Spirit.
Took a long hard look at all of us, from the inside out.
Showed us things we never knew about ourselves.
Or never chose to acknowledge.
In so many ways, he was a teacher more than even a filmmaker.
He showed us that there is good in even the ugliest depths of our souls,
evil in some of the brightest, most shining moments we have to offer.
That’s what it’s like to be human.
That’s what it’s like to be alive, not just taking up space.
Just had to pay my respects.
