‘Here’s a recent quote I found: ‘We don’t talk, we bludgeon one another with facts and theories gleaned from cursory readings of newspapers, magazines and digests.’ That was actually written in 1945 by Henry Miller and I think it’s timely. I think it says that the world has been on its present course for a long time. People all over the world spend countless hours every week being fed entertainment in the form of movies, TV shows, newspapers, YouTube videos and the internet. It’s ludicrous to believe that this stuff doesn’t alter our brains…..’
(Charlie Kaufman, Screenwriters Lecture, 2012)
