Listening to BBC Radio 3 interview w/ David Cronenberg (22:00 today). Will tweet some content….
#Cronenberg: # DeLillo said idea for story was big white limos prowling streets of NY, too big for Manhattan, who owned limos? @BBCRadio 3
|Madison Ave. $ 47th St. NYC|
DeLillo began w/this idea, not overall view of society/art. Cronenberg‘s interest was fantastic dialogue. Wanted to hear actors speak it.
There was no thought in my mind about millennia or apocalypse. Just one man in one car-that is how I began the novel.” #Cronenberg #Cosmopolis
#Cronenberg interested in the character & abstract nature of Eric’s world. Wanted film f/perspective of lead character. @BBCRadio 3

I think of my films as philosophical exploration of human condition. What it is to be human. My version of human condition, in particular.
