Quote of the Day

"I love Bergman. I still love Bergman. I still just think of Brink of Life [1957], my favorite Bergman: three pregnant women in a maternity ward. I used to go to this college nearby, Delta College, and they showed every Bergman movie. I’d steal books and watch Bergman. I used to take Divine on acid and make him go to Bergman movies. And he would get so mad. I always remember, The Hour of the Wolf [1968], where she rips her face off and Divine was like, “That’s it. I’m not lookin’ at these movies ever again! I want to see movies about rich people!”

That's the great John Waters talking to the great Kim Morgan in the latest issue of Sight & Sound magazine, which Kim was kind enough to transcribe part of at her site Sunset Gun. I never do this anymore because PRINT IS DEAD as they keep saying but I am going to have to run out on my lunch-break and find me a copy of this magazine proper and read this whole damn interview.
